United States of America donated 250,000 USD to the Committee on Missing Persons in Cyprus (CMP).

 According to the statement of the Committee on Missing Persons in Cyprus (CMP), the contribution was provided through the UNDP-Action for Cooperation and Trust (ACT) Program. This brought the United States financial assistance to the CMP to a total of 724,800 USD over the past ten 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, 632 missing persons from both communities have been identified and returned to their families for a dignified burial.
