One Direction’s Zayn Malik Breaks Down During Hospital Visit In Africa

The people from Red Nose Day asked the boys from One Direction to visit Africa, to see for themselves how, for thousands of babies, a simple vaccine costing just £5 can mean the difference between life and death. They were not prepared for what they were about to see.

The group travelled to Accra, Ghana in support of Comic Relief, which raises money for the disadvantaged, and their annual Red Nose Day event. Zayne Malik, Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles, Liam Payne and Niall Horana were all there to support. They spent time with babies that were so skinny and weak because they were dying from not having had an important vaccination. Unfortunatley, their families couldn’t afford them.

It was so overwhelming for Malik who fought back tears outside the hospital saying, “It’s so hard. I’ve never seen anything, never experienced anything like this in my life.” Watch the emotional video below.

    “In Africa”? what do u mean, there are over 55 countries in Africa, where was he? irresponsible “journalism “. constantly refferign to Africa as a homogenous hole! come on guys, lets werk, this aint it!

  • Lutho Somdyala

    The headline should have stated the exact location

  • Richard

    It was listed boldly, in the second paragraph. They went to Accra, Ghana.

  • @Lutho… As @Richard noted, they were in Accra, Ghana which is noted in bold in the second paragraph of the article.

  • meh

    Journalism… this isn’t the New York Times.

    If Patrick said Zayn’s visit occurred in the UK and it happened in Africa, that would be irresponsible journalism. Even if he omitted the Accra, Ghana location the visit still occurred in Africa; he just wasn’t accurate.

    Back to the story, I hope that with Zayn’s (and One Direction’s) new found fame, they give more than five pounds to the effort other than their time in front of the camera.

    also gave me pain as zayn have to be very supportive of that children
