It is a Ugandan initiative which was encouraged and supported by CBM with the main aim of expanding and improving rehabilitation services for children and people with disability. It operates a 54-bed patient ward and the primary focus is on children with physical impairment for whom CoRSU provides orthopaedic and plastic/reconstructive surgical interventions and rehabilitation services. The organization is comprised of individuals who have been functioning as a viable network of disability advocates for over thirty years, drawn from both current and former CBM partners. Currently, CoRSU has 500 staff members with annual revenues of 3,000,000,000 Ugandan Shillings ($1,200,000 Canadian Dollars). Further, CoRSU has a Board of Directors which is competence-based and comprised of doctors, lawyers, administrators, financial managers, business people, community leaders and rehabilitation experts.
