One Direction stars in two commercials benefiting Comic Relief, the same anti-famine organization that released its cover of “One Way or Another.” Both ad spots follow the British boy band’s recent trip to Accra, Ghana, where they visited children suffering from malaria, then learned of how a £5 vaccination could have prevented their suffering — a fact that causes Harry Styles and Liam Payne to tear up.

Watch the clip starring Styles and Payne above, then check out another clip starring Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson after the jump.
