Beckham visits abused kids in Manila: UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador

(AP) MANILA, Philippines — Away from fans’ prying eyes, David Beckham took time out from soccer to share his experiences and listen to Filipino children struggling to rebuild their broken lives.

“It’s so important to have a dream,” Beckham told the former street children Friday at a UNICEF-supported shelter in a suburb of Manila, the Philippine capital where he and his teammates from the Los Angeles Galaxy are playing an exhibition against the country’s national team this weekend.
