Germany donated on Monday €100,000 to the Committee on Missing Persons (CMP) in Cyprus.
The Committee thanked the Federal Republic of Germany for the donation, noting that it brings the Federal Republic of Germany’s financial assistance to the CMP to a total of €600,000 since 2006 and makes it the fifth largest single donor country.
Moreover, it said in a press release, that contribution to the CMP Project on the Exhumation, Identification and Return of Remains of Missing Persons in Cyprus will support the Committee’s goal of identifying and returning as many remains of missing individuals as possible to bring an end to the uncertainty which has affected so many families for so many years.
So far, 896 missing persons from both communities have been identified and returned to their families for dignified burials, the press release added.
The CMP relies on donor support to alleviate the suffering of the concerned families.
