UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador David Beckham

David Beckham joined the UNICEF (United Nations Children’s Fund) team this week to help pack educational and medical supplies for shipment to children affected by the tsunami in Asia.

In his first appearance as a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF, David Beckham visited UNICEF’s Supply Division in Copenhagen, Denmark.

david beckham unicefBecks also recorded a video message urging public support for UNICEF’s response to the disaster in Asia. The UN organization has launched a $144.5 million appeal to support urgent humanitarian aid for the estimated 1.5 million affected children in Asia who are in critical need of basic care and support.

Beckham’s 30-second Public Service Announcement (PSA) will serve as a valuable fundraising and advocacy tool for UNICEF offices across the world to assist its emergency relief operation.

“I, like any other person, was deeply moved by the effects of the tsunami disaster. So many people have lost loved ones and particularly children have suffered greatly with over a million who are vulnerable and at risk of disease,” Beckham said.
