When you are part of the biggest boy band in the world, you have great influence. Using that influence for the good of society is one great thing celebrities can do. You can raise awareness to things that are important but have never seen the spotlight.
That’s exactly what happened to Zayn Malik when he was brought to tears while visiting a hospital in Africa where babies are struggling for their lives.
The thing is, these babies can be saved. They are fighting for their lives against preventable and curable ailments such as diarrhea and pneumonia.
Many teenagers in developed countries don’t understand the weight of this issues in other developing or underdeveloped countries. That’s where One Direction comes in. Their visit to countries such as Africa can raise awareness about a global problem that is basically unknown or unheard of in developed countries.
