Ed Sheeran turn his ears to children crying for help in Monrovia, Liberia. He visited children who are living in streets and even partnered with Comic Relief's Red Nose Day.

Sheeran was moved into tears upon hearing some life stories of the children and paid with his own money, the things needed by the children in order to help them at ease.

"I'll never forget the kids I met on this trip, when we sang together they were in such high spirits despite everything they'd been through," he said."It was an incredibly eye-opening experience and I'm really proud to support Comic Relief and see what they are doing to help these children have a better future."

"There are so many groups in Suffolk which are a vital resource for the community and do a massive amount on very little money. These new Comic Relief Community Cash grants will provide a welcome boost," Stephen Singleton from Suffolk Community Foundation said saying there are over $56,000 available for causes in Suffolk and more than $18,000 available for north Essex, media partners to help decide where this money goes.

Gilly Green of UK grants says that the Comic Relief helps some foundation and charity organization to launch smaller projects outside United Kingdom.
