From VOA Learning English this is the Health Report.
 
Children love to play, but for some children, the idea of simple joyful playtime can seem very far away. These boys and girls may look differently than others, and not be able to move around as others do.
 
A rehabilitation center near Uganda's capital is working hard to change that. It is bringing together doctors, volunteers and donations from around the world. They have established the first and only center for treating disabled children in Uganda.
 
The center is called Comprehensive Rehabilitation Services for Uganda, also known as CoRSU. The people there are concerned about the abilities of boys and girls, not their disabilities.
 
On a thick grass outside the main hospital, a mix of current and former patients do something others may take for granted -- they are playing. They compete in sports, play games and even perform silly dances. The theme of the day is simply: Let Them Play. This is a rare event for children who are missing arms or legs, have physical deformities, or suffer from trauma.
 
The purpose of the event is to raise money for a new playground and sports field. Campaign organizers want to make the old playground into an area that is friendly to all sorts of disabled children.
 
Life for the disabled in Uganda is difficult, but for children it can be a shock some never overcome.
 
Christine Tusiime is the principal physiotherapist at CoRSU. A physiotherapist often directs exercise programs for those affected by injury, sickness or disability.
 
Christine Tusiime talks about the problems facing the disabled in Uganda. She says that a disabled child may have trouble socializing, or interacting with others. They are stigmatized, meaning others look down on them.
 
CoRSU treats patients from all over Uganda, and nearby countries, including South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
 
On the grounds of CoRSU, there are areas where doctors can operate on patients. There are also therapy rooms, housings and even a primary school.
 
Therapies can last from a few days to a few months. The treatments also involve support groups for parents and families. Sometimes even those closest to the child can have trouble understanding the disability.
 
CoRSU receives no financial support from the Ugandan government. It depends on donations.
 
I'm Anna Matteo.

这里是美国之音慢速英语健康报道。

孩子们喜欢嬉戏,但对一些孩子来说,欢乐嬉戏这一简单想法似乎遥不可及。这些孩子可能看上去和其他孩子有所不同,他们无法像其他孩子那样活动自如。

乌干达首都附近的一所康复中心正努力改变现状,该中心聚集了来自全世界各地的医生、志愿者和捐助。他们已建立乌干达首个唯一治疗残疾儿童的康复中心。

该中心被称为乌干达综合康复服务中心,也称为CoRSU。在这的工作者关注的是孩子们的能力而非缺陷。

在主医院大楼外的一片厚实草地上,一群当前和以前的患者一起在做一些他人认为再寻常不过的活动——他们在玩耍。他们进行体育竞赛、做游戏,甚至表演笨拙的舞蹈。这天的主题很简单:让他们玩吧!这对因这些身体畸形或遭受创伤而缺胳膊少腿的孩子来说是少有的活动。

该活动的目的是为新操场和运动场地集资。活动组织者希望将旧操场改建成方便各种残疾儿童的场地。

残疾人士在乌干达生活不易,但是对儿童来说也许永远无法克服一些困难。


Christine Tusiime是康复中心的主治理疗医师,主治理疗医师通常为那些因受伤、疾病或残疾影响人士指导运动方案。

Christine Tusiime谈到乌干达残疾人士所面临的问题,她表示残疾儿童可能在交际方面存在问题。他们会受到歧视,其他人可能看不起他们。

康复中心治疗的病人来自乌干达各地和一些邻国,包括南苏丹和刚果共和国。

康复中心中的场地里,有医生治疗病人的区域,也有理疗室、宿舍,甚至有小学。

治愈时间可能持续数天到数月不等,需要治疗的也包括针对父母和家人的支持团体,有时候,即使这些病人最亲近的人也无法理解残障。

康复中心没有乌干达政府的经济支持,中心依靠的是捐款。

我是 Anna Matteo。
