Living with a handicap in the Solomon Islands is tough. It’s one of the poorest nations in the Pacific. Australian paralympic rugby champion Curtis Palmer is there for a week coaching a group of people with disabilities in wheelchairs on behalf of an NGO. Workshops are organised in developing countries, using sport to ‘change things.’ How to enjoy life again and face up to people in spite of everyday difficulties.
