The new hostel – kindly donated by the CCC Foundation of Australia – was opened in 2013. Recognizing that patients are unable to make the multiple trips to and from the hospital during their treatment, the hostel aims to provide patients and their families food and lodging. The new hostel offers a calming, relaxing environment for patients and families. There are approximately 43 rooms and Ward facilities for 75 patients – both adult and children. The hostel is particularly beneficial for patients’ relatives – especially mothers who would like to remain close to their children during their treatment. Additional amenities at the hostel include TV rooms, a courtyard, parking and catering kitchens.
