 Brief history

It started as a dispensary for the pupils of St Cecilia Buyamba boarding primary school in 1986 and later due to public demand in the area, community members asked the parish to extend its service so that they could access medical services which were unavailable in the area. It was thought wise by the diocese that instead of just opening up the dispensary of the school to the community, it would rather be better to put up an independent facility from the school which would serve the whole community of Buyamba Parish and the neighboring places. This is how St. Cecilia Buyamba dispensary and maternity center came to be
