We can offer you one hospital lodge, where we offer the lowest prices as we value your long-term or short-term contribution to our hospital. We also give you a brief description of three non-hospital lodging options and it’s up to you to make your choice.
In the ‘backyard’ of the hospital on a 1-minute walking distance, this newly constructed accommodation has 4 rooms with private bathroom with toilet and shower. Our Chifundu (means: ‘Compassion’) Palliative Care project established this lodge in 2016 to be able to host all students participating in trainings in palliative care. At this moment, mostly visiting students stay in this house as this Hospital Guesthouse offers the lowest price in Nkhoma. Chifundo House has a nice common living room with a kitchen with refrigerator, cooker, gas cooker for power-cuts and a microwave. The rooms are cleaned 3 times a week and the cleaning lady is happy to do your laundry for the price of $2.50 per bundle.
