David Beckham recently traveled to Cambodia with UNICEF to visit children in the area.
According to Look To The Stars, David traveled to the area to see how UNICEF and its partners are assisting children who have suffered physical, sexual, and emotional abuse, as well as protecting them from danger. “I am here in Cambodia to meet children who have experienced violence, hear their stories and see what UNICEF and its partners are doing to keep these children safe,” said David, who is now in his 10th year as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador “It is shocking that every five minutes a child dies because of violence somewhere in the world. This has to stop.”
Earlier this year, in his 10th year as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, David and UNICEF launched 7: The David Beckham UNICEF Fund to help protect children in danger. This fund will assist the organization in creating programs for children across the world to aid in this mission.
