Generator sizing for electrical demand

I am going to live and work in a very remote area in Sudan. The electricity in that place is going to be provided for about 4-5 hours a day as an average. I have to run a clinic (12 rooms) which is less than 2 km away from my office/guest house (12 rooms). The electronic equipment I have to use are:

Office Guest House: 1 fridge, 2 air coolers, 30 neon lamp, 2 computers, 12 fans, 1 printer, 2 power stabiliser, 1 2kW satellite receiver, 2 Radio sets (Motorola), 1 speaker for laptop, 4 tungsten lamp, and 3 mobile chargers.

Clinic: 30 neon lamps, 1 laptop, and 1 fridge (option).

The place is going to be very hot throughout the summer and spring period with an average temperature of between 40-50 degrees.

Could you advisee me on what is the best generator and the most cost effective one? The options I am looking at are: 2 separate generators - 1 for the clinic and one for the office; or 1 generator for both of them
