The two facilities are more than 30 Kilometers apart and serve a population of over 1000 residents from 15 villages. 

Kyengado Health centre was built in 2018 after residents raised Shillings 22million and bought land, which they offered to the government for the construction while Engari Health centre was constructed in the 90s at the Sub County headquarters.

Apollo Babigumira and residents of Kyengado, say that they have for long wanted the government to upgrade their health centre.
