We saw Ed Sheeran reduced to tears on Comic Relief over the weekend by JD, an orphaned Liberian boy.
Just as Ed was about to leave Liberia, he felt he couldn't leave JD and his friends saying:
"My natural instinct is to just put them in a car and just take them and just put them in a hotel until we can get them sorted.
Can I pay to put them in a house until we get them in a school?
It doesn’t matter how much it costs can we just get him and his five mates in a house with an older person to look after them?
I don’t think we can go until that’s sorted."
The Mail Online managed to track down a thankfully safe and sound JD who said:
"It feels nice to know that people who don’t know me still care about me. I feel happy about that.
If I had not met Street Child and Ed, I would still be on the streets and sleeping in canoes on the beach. I wouldn’t have anyone to care for me. The beach at night can be a dangerous place.
One bad thing about living on the streets was that other boys would sometimes wake you up in the night and beat you hard just to take anything you had. Sometimes they took money if I had any, or they took my clothes. This made me feel very bad and scared at night."
Ed Sheeran, we salute you!
