While his days as a footballer are over, David Beckham is still making a positive impact on the world as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.
Beckham recently visited Swaziland to fulfill his duties with the 7 Fund, a nonprofit which represents his "commitment to helping children who need it the most."
"I traveled to Swaziland to learn more about the impact that HIV has on children here, and see how my 7 Fund is supporting UNICEF to provide care and support to those children," Beckham said in a YouTube video uploaded by UNICEF U.K. on June 9.
Over one in four people in Swaziland are living with HIV, which is the highest prevalence in the world. On top of that, Swaziland is now experiencing a devastating drought that is impacting food prices. Beckham is calling on the world to chip in to help the children in Swaziland.
"I'm urging the global community to do all it can to help children affected by this drought and ensure that UNICEF can deliver the life-saving food, medicine and clean water that these children so desperately need," Beckham said in the video.
Beckham's trip to Swaziland included stops to the impoverished regions of Lubombo and Shiselweni. He shared some of his experiences on the trip to Instagram.
Beckham said that he was proud that the money he is raising with the 7 Fund is helping moms give birth to healthy infants. He also referred to the moments he spent with the children as "an inspiring time."
