Robert Grossenbacher was one of the original founding board members of Cry Cameroon USA.  Robert and his wife Mary have had a special interest in supporting foreign missions and missionaries since the mid 1970s.  They were the first supporters of the ministry of Valentin Mbong, the founder of Cry Cameroon and Harvest Children’s Home. 

He was born and raised in San Francisco.  Robert has a BS in Electrical Engineering from San Jose State University.  Although now retired, he worked as a design engineer most of his career.  Following college, however, he served as an officer in the US Air Force and is a Vietnam veteran.

Njoh Amos ("Kiki")

Kiki and his wife Elisabeth live in Richmond, CA. He was born and raised in Douala, Cameroon and moved to the United States in 2000. He is a graduate of Cal State University where he earned a Degree in Accounting and Business Administration. He is an active member and leader at the French African Church of the New Covenant in Berkeley, CA.

He was instrumental in the creation of Cry Cameroon USA where he and his brothers assisted Uncle Rev. Mbong Valentin Felix to conceive and create a website for Cry Cameroon USA. For years, he has followed with keen interest the evolution of the ministry.

During his many business trips to Africa, he was moved by the abject condition of orphaned and abandoned children who roamed the streets unattended. As a result, he began a ministry providing school supplies, food items, first aid kits and hygienic supplies to needy and orphaned children through local Churches and Orphanages in Angola, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Cameroon.
