CoRSU was established in 2006 as a private non profit, non government organization in Uganda after extensive consultation with various stake holders. It is a Ugandan initiative which was encouraged and supported by CBM with the main aim of expanding and improving the rehabilitation services for children and people with disability.
The primary focus is on children with physical impairment for whom CoRSU provides Orthopaedic and Plastic/Reconstructive surgical interventions and rehabilitation services. CoRSU provides subsidised treatment for CWDs below 17 years of age.
The Vision of CoRSU is that people with disability in Uganda are able to access rehabilitation services that improve their quality of life and that they are fully integrated in society.
CoRSU’s Mission is to be a key player in Uganda in preventing disability and reducing the consequences of impairment, through the provision of accessible, affordable, appropriate quality medical, therapy and community rehabilitation services for people with disability, prioritizing children.
