Playtime for children at CoRSU Hospital in Uganda

Posted on: Tuesday, January 17th, 2023

At CoRSU Hospital in Uganda, children are now enjoying a colourful new playground, thanks to CBM supporters and funding from The National Lottery Community Fund. The play facilities are supporting rehabilitation for children undergoing treatment at the hospital.  

This beautiful new play equipment is helping to create an inclusive environment for children who often travel from long distances and stay at the hospital for weeks or months for their treatment. Alongside the outdoor playground, the children are offered other activities including individual and group therapy sessions, including: inclusive sports activities, music therapy, art and crafts, life skills training, dance and drama.

CoRSU is a specialist hospital established with CBM’s support in 2006. It provides affordable and quality healthcare services for people with disabilities in Uganda. 80% of children with disabilities living in Uganda have treatable conditions, with no access to help. Now at CoRSU, hundreds of children are treated each year for conditions like bow leg and clubfoot, utterly transforming the lives of whole families.
