The Committee on Missing Persons (CMP) received a donation of €150,000 from Greece, taking the country’s contribution to a total of €345,000 since 2006.

The CMP said that in 2022, these funds would go to support the CMP project on the exhumation, identification and return of remains of missing persons with the goal of ending the uncertainty which has affected the families for so many years.

So far, 1,025 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.

The European Union is the main financial contributor to the CMP.
