 Becks Joins Battle Against Malaria
David Beckham has joined hands with British Prime Minister Gordon Brown in the battle against malaria.

The soccer ace and the British premier have launched an anti-malaria campaign, 'Malaria No More UK', to eradicate the deadly disease in high-risk areas.

Although malaria is easily treatable, half the world's population is still at risk from the disease.

And Beckham is hopeful that with the support of the British government, he can help wipe out Malaria for good.

"It's truly incredible to think we can stop this killer disease forever and it's such a simple thing to do," Contactmusic quoted him as saying.

He added: "For less than the cost of a football you can protect a family from dying. I urge the U.K. public to get behind the Malaria No More UK campaign to save a life and make malaria no more."
