Finding Perth's Missing People Through A Humble Cup Of Coffee
Kymba took time to record a video advocating a cool little initiative that two Perth cafes have helped take up in order to raise awareness for National Missing Persons Week.
This year, 2 missing Perth people have been highlighted. One is Rigby Fielding, the other is Marty Tann. Three Perth based artists/writers (Julie Koh, Jeffrey Phillips and Adam Chi) have banded together to create the biodegradable, Unmissable artworks that feature on the coffee cups.
Emily Tann, cousin of missing Perth man Marty Tann, says that keeping the stories of missing loved ones alive is important, especially for family and friends.
“We have to always remember that these are people with families, friends, and memories. It’s about keeping their stories alive, so we never stop looking for them. It’s been really tough. For our family and friends it’s not fair for so many reasons. All we can do is remain hopeful that one day Marty will come back to us.”
Some time ago, Kymba spoke about her personal experience with MPAN and how her best friend Lauren started the network.
