The need in Tercha is great. While the population has boomed over the last decade, there is no infrastructure in place to adequately deal with the growth and support the people. The town desperately needs to provide the thousands of people who live there with safe water for drinking, washing, and bathing. The Tercha Hospital also needs clean water. It is hard to imagine a hospital not having clean water, but that is the reality in Tercha. Water must be brought to the hospital. Additionally, the hospital itself needs work. As the hospital in Tercha serves all of the surrounding areas, which accounts for more than half a million people, it is imperative that this hospital has a maternity ward. Currently there is no place for women to get maternal care and this is a pressing and urgent need. In addition to the maternity ward, new equipment is also needed at the hospital so that it can better attend to the hundreds of thousands of people that it serves. Beyond water and health care, Tercha town also needs new school facilities. With thousands of children in the town, Tercha must be able to accommodate them for school and they currently do not have the ability to do so. The schools that exist are dilapidated and are incredibly overcrowded. New school facilities are necessary to provide a quality learning environment so that the students no longer have to sit huddled together on the dirt floors trying to focus on lessons.
