The boys of One Direction have been using their fame for a very good cause this week, travelling to Ghana to volunteer in support of Red Nose Day!

Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne and Zayn Malik visited the impoverished village of Accra as part of UK charity organisation Comic Relief, taking to Twitter when they returned to detail their experience.

“Just arrived back from Accra,Ghana! Best life experience ever! This @rednoseday please get involved!,” Niall tweeted.

“I've seen the slums right in front of me! This is no joke! They really need your help! Poverty is real!”

“Massive thanks to @rednoseday for taking us to Ghana! It was incredible! Real eye opener! We take so much for granted over here!” he enthusiastically continued.

Harry was also deeply affected by the trip, revealing to his almost 10 million followers, “Today was the most amazing day I've had so far..In my life ever.”

According to E! News, the chart-topping boy band has also recorded a cover of Blondie’s hit ‘One Way or Another,’ to help raise money for the Comic Relief fund.
