She coordinates the work of Friends Church Peace Team, as well as overseeing the Girl Child Education Programme, and managing FUM’s relationships with Turkana Friends Mission and Samburu Friends Mission.
Getry’s will and heart are in peace work.

Getry says: “As darkness gets closer, so worries get stronger and all the time we think about the risks of Peace Ministries. I feel blessed as a person because it has been a testimony and I survived a lot. And this is my motivation to keep on keeping on.”
Getry is married to Joseph Thuita and blessed with three children: Dennah Khasiala, Daniel Njuguna, and Esther Khaluhi.
