United Kingdom donates 7,000 GBP to the CMP

(Nicosia, 10 April 2018) - The Committee on Missing Persons (CMP) wishes to express its sincere thanks to the United Kingdom for its donation of GBP 7,000 (EUR 8,000) made today. This brings the British financial assistance to the CMP to a total of EUR 305,000 over the past eleven years.

This donation to the CMP Project on the Exhumation, Identification and Return of Remains of Missing Persons in Cyprus will contribute to the Committee’s goal of identifying and returning as many remains of missing individuals as possible in order to bring an end to the uncertainty which has affected so many families for so many years.

So far, 868 missing persons from both communities have been identified and returned to their families for a dignified burial.

The CMP relies on donor support to alleviate the suffering of the concerned families.
