Kathi’s House founder returning to Kenya North Fulton resident working with orphans with AIDS and HIV
By RALPH ELLIS The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Published on: 04/04/08
David Gruber is returning to Kenya.
The North Fulton resident first visited the African nation in November to dedicate Kathi’s House, the first building constructed in a complex for orphans with AIDS and HIV. RELATED LINKS: • Photos: Earlier trip to Kenya
His emotional visit to Kenya was described in a story and photos that ran Dec. 5 in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and on ajc.com.
That simple cinderblock building was named after Gruber’s wife, Kathi, who died of cancer last June.
Gruber wanted to honor his wife’s memory and, through members of his church, became involved in mission work for Kenya. Though Kathi never visited Africa, she was an orphan herself and had a soft spot in her heart for displaced people.
This trip will be a little different.
After revisiting Kathi’s House and the orphans who live there, Gruber and others from the Atlanta area will deliver supplies to camps serving Kenyans displaced by the political chaos that occurred recently in that country.
He’ll also prepare for a conference on helping Kenyan children before leaving Kenya next Friday. David and Kathi’s teenaged daughter, Courtney, also made the trip.
Gruber will post a running account of his trip and experiences. To read his postings, go to http://reliefforkenya.blogspot.com.
