In the first in a series of four videos about Little Mix's time in Liberia, the film sees Perrie Edwards talking about her experiences while in the slums of the country's capital, Monrovia. The band were there to see how Sport Relief cash is helping to change lives of people living unimaginably tough lives.

In the film, Perrie becomes visibly shocked and upset while at a hospital, where they saw children who were desperately sick with life threatening conditions that are easily preventable. At the end of the film the band are seen playing and dancing in the streets with the children they have met.

Perrie said:

"I think no matter how much you prepare yourself before you come out here -- nothing can prepare you for it. It's just a completely different world. Parts of it have been really, really upsetting. It is really hard seeing people in conditions where they're so unhealthy and seeing the conditions they live in.

"But then you soon realise there's so much we can do to help. It can be changed and if everybody just gets involved, it's so easy to just give them what they need."

"Being here and being with Sport Relief has definitely opened my eyes to a lot of things. It's been incredible, hard, heart wrenching and it's an absolute honour and a privilege to be asked to be involved -- and to come out and see it for myself and to be able to go back and tell everybody my stories."

Little Mix's Sport Relief single Word Up, a cover of the 1986 smash hit by Cameo, is available to pre-order now, and is available to download on iTunes from 16th March with the CD available to buy exclusively in Sainsbury's from 17th March.
