The Hague, 12 September 2023 – The government of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg has made a new financial donation to support efforts by the International Commission on Missing Persons (ICMP) to help account for missing and disappeared persons. The donation will be used to fund vital operations at ICMP’s headquarters in The Hague and around the world.
“It is thanks to the goodwill and targeted support of long-standing partners such as Luxembourg that ICMP has been able to develop its advanced technical assistance capabilities and implement a growing number of country programs around the world,” ICMP Director-General Kathryne Bomberger said today. “We are grateful for the indispensable and longstanding support provided by Luxembourg, one of the five original signatory countries to the Agreement establishing ICMP as a treaty-based international organization.”
“As an International focal point on the issue of missing persons, ICMP works from its Headquarters in The Hague across a range of programs around the world, supporting governments to develop sustainable missing persons processes. Luxembourg has been committed to supporting ICMP’s vital work since its inception,” said the Ambassador of the Luxembourg to the Netherlands, H.E. Mr. Mike Hentges.
ICMP is a treaty-based intergovernmental organization with Headquarters in The Hague, the Netherlands. Its mandate is to secure the cooperation of governments and others in locating missing persons from conflict, human rights abuses, disasters, organized crime, irregular migration and other causes and to assist them in doing so.
