Kenya’s First Lady Margaret Kenyatta meets Terry’s Kid, Nancy Wengeci

This is from the Eldoret Newspaper about Nancy Wengeci, one of our sweetest Terry’s Kids. She is a full orphan and sponsored by Betty Smith of Villa Park, California. A photo of Nancy with the First Lady of Kenya was on the front page. Take a look at the short video and you can see why everyone was brought to tears-

“An 11 year old girl moved the crowd to tears during First Lady Margaret Kenyatta’s tour of the North Rift on Tuesday when she publicly declared that she is HIV positive.

Emotions ran high at Uasin-Gishu County headquarters grounds in Eldoret as Nancy Wangeci of He Intends Victory (HIV) Kenya ,a Christian organization for those infected and affected by HIV who was born with the virus recited a poem about her life with the virus.

“11 years ago a girl was born with HIV. The bright girl is in class six and she wants to study hard to achieve her dreams. That girl is standing before you,”said the girl as a hush silence fell on the crowd with tears flowing freely from the cheeks of others.

The soft-spoken girl who was accompanied by He Intends Victory (HIV) Kenya Executive Director Martha Ambani thanked the government for supporting people living with HIV/AIDS by providing care and Anti-Retroviral drugs.”
