The lads of One Direction visited Ghana in January of this year and a documentary about their time there has been shown each week during Let’s Dance For Comic Relief.
Tonight, the third part of the series will air on the penultimate episode of the BBC show and in it, the lads will be away from the children’s hospital they have visited for the past two weeks and instead will be taking a walk through some of the region’s slums and meeting the people that live there.
The boys of course released Comic Relief’s best selling charity single ever recently and the track ‘One Way Or Another’ has raised a substantial amount of cash. During their African visit, the lads met some of the people that would be helped by all those funds.
A press release from the BBC states:
“The film sees Louis and Niall visibly shocked at meeting Idris, 12, and Sulle, 15, who are forced to make a living by scraping by on a rubbish tip. The boys spend their days finding wires that they burn to extract metal to sell in order to survive, rather than going to school and getting the education that could help them to break the cycle of poverty.”
“It’s backbreaking work and they often suffer severe burns to their hands and inhale toxic smoke. The band has not only recorded this year’s official Red Nose Day single, “One Way or Another (Teenage Kicks)” but they are also trying to inspire their fans to raise cash for the campaign, and show their support for the boys.”
There seems to be a few less tears in this new instalment, as in previous clips all five boys have been seen crying and sobbing over the plight of the sick children, who could have been saved with one cheap vaccination.
