The Hospital

I no longer work in this hospital and have moved to a different part of Chad, however if you would like more information about Bebalem hospital, I have contact with people who are working there and can put you in touch.


Bebalem hospital is a rural hospital in south Chad. It has 185 beds.

The hospital is owned by the Evangelical church of Chad.


L’hôpital de Bebalem est un hôpital rural au sud Tchad. Il a 185 lits.  L’hôpital appartient à l’église évangélique du Tchad.

    Hi Catherine! Thought we should introduce ourselves as we may soon be colleagues in Chad! My name is Cari Robertson and my husband, Andy, is a pediatrician who worked at Bebalem last summer. We head to language school this fall and then to Chad next summer. We are appointees with AIM, USA. We have a blog, as well, and use email. Would you like to get in touch? Hope your prep is going well!

    You do well with harnessing technology. I’m glad the days of photocopying prayer letters are almost a thing of the past. We look forward to following your progress with our prayers – still the best way of communicating.

    J’espère que tu es bien arrivée à Babalem, j’ai ma nièce qui est au centre dans lequel tu te trouves. Elle s’appelle Esther Mobélé, je lui ai parlé de toi. A l’église Paix aujourd’hui, on pense beacoup à toi, nous avons reçu de tes nouvelles. Je t’ai envoyé un mail au nom de l’église, je ne sais pas si tu l’as reçu. Dans ce mail je te disais que l’église à un projet de t’envoyer un colis pour noël et pour cela, nous avons besoin d’une adresse sûre. Je te souhaite une bonne installation au Tchad et que le Seigneur soit toujours ton bouclier.
    Grosses bises

    Hi Catherine:
    Just learned today that Bebalem is closed.
    I built the hospital in 1962 and served there until illness forced us home a few years later. We have lost contact with Tchad except for Paul Weber whom I delivered!
    Would love to here from you.

      Bebalem hospital is not closed, but is working hard under the leadership of the EET church. Please continue to pray for the work there. Thanks.

    Hi Gordon, from Catherine’s mum. Catherine has very unreliable internet, so may never have seen your comment, and I’ve only just found it. Bebalem is far from closed, I assure you, it’s very busy! So God continues to use the work you began to reach the needy with medicine and the gospel. Let me know if you would like Catherine’s prayer updates.

    Hi Catherine. I am trying to contact Bebalem Hospital. Any chance you could share their contact details?

      I can pass your details on to them. Do you have French? Their contacts have no English as there are no English speaking staff at present at Bebalem Hospital.
