I was very taken by what I have seen and learnt about people living with Spinal Cord injuries and it makes me think about the simple things we take for granted.
These were the sentiments of Internationally acclaimed New Zealand actor Temuera Morrison while speaking at the Viti Spinal Injuries Association of Fiji Old Skool Ball.
He adds that learning of the challenges’ that care givers and spinal cord injury patients go through and being able to play a little part in assisting them is humbling.
Morrison also acknowledged the care-givers and patients that were present at the event and says that it takes a special kind of person to give up their time and most of their life to make a difference in assisting those living with spinal cord injuries.
The Actor did not fail to put smiles on the faces of those present at the event revealing that the shooting of the movie Aquaman is to begin next week in Australia.
