TACLOBAN, Philippines, 14 February 2014 – UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador David Beckham spent his Valentine’s Day visiting young survivors of Typhoon Haiyan.
For two days, Mr. Beckham toured Tacloban and the surrounding areas, which were among the hardest hit when the powerful storm ripped through the central Philippines 98 days ago.
“As a father, it was deeply moving to meet children as young as 2 who were left with nothing but the clothes they were wearing when sea and storm water swept through their villages during the typhoon,” said Mr. Beckham, who helped launch a UNICEF emergency appeal for funding just days after the storm.
“Here in the Philippines, I have seen how public donations can have an incredible effect on children’s lives in an emergency,” said Mr. Beckham.
