The Committee on Missing Persons in Cyprus (CMP) on Tuesday expressed its sincere thanks to the Republic of Ireland for its donation of €25,000, which was received on November 8, 2021. This contribution brings Ireland’s financial assistance to the CMP to a total of €375,000 since 2006, it said.
These funds will support the CMP Project on the Exhumation, Identification and Return of Remains of Missing Persons in Cyprus with its goal to identify and return the remains of missing individuals and to bring to an end the uncertainty which has affected the families for so many years.
So far, 1,020 missing persons from both Cypriot communities have been identified and returned to their families for dignified burials.
CMP relies on donor support to implement its bi-communal project that alleviates the suffering of the concerned families.
