Since going on hiatus from super-group One Direction, Louis Tomlinson's main priority has been his son, Freddie.

 

But now, the singer has turned his efforts to raise funds for a disabled child.

 

The 24-year-old's mother Johanna, arranged for One Direction to meet Georgia Edwards last year at one of the band's concerts.

 

Georgia suffers from a condition called Rett syndrome, which she was diagnosed with in 2013. Rett syndrome affects the development of the brain, which could cause severe physical and mental disability as the child grows up.

 

 

Louis' mam has been a huge support to Georgia and her family, arranging her dream day with the boyband, but now, Louis wants to go one further.

 

He called out on Twitter to ask the public for help as Georgia and her family have to move from Wales to Liverpool to be closer to the Alder Hey Children's Hospital, which have specialist care for her rare condition.

 

Since the family have to move, it means they have to give back Georgia's medical equipment to the NHS in their local area.

 

 

The cost of new equipment is £10,000 (€12,000), and Louis has already chipped in a sizable amount.

 

He wrote on his Twitter page: "My friend Georgie needs some love & any donations you can spare for equipment to help her," and then gave a link to the family's crowdfunding page.

 

Speaking to The Sun, Georgia's mam, Katie, explained the generosity of Louis and his mother: "She arranged for us to go to the concert in Manchester and to meet all of the boys. It was one of the happiest days of Georgia's life, she is absolutely obsessed with One Direction, she adores them. Since then Louis and his mum have stayed in touch and we just cannot thank them enough."
