Beckham saw UNICEF’s vital emergency work for children, including visiting a child-friendly space at one of Tacloban’s major evacuation points.

“I was humbled to visit Tacloban and see how people are still so full of spirit despite the devastation they have suffered. Close to 6 million children are affected and many have lost loved ones,” said Beckham.

“As a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, seeing how children are being given a sense of normalcy amidst the rubble of their communities has been amazing. I want to show people around the world how their generous donations have had an enormous impact on children and their families and how thankful people here are for their kindness.”
