The retired soccer ace headed to the Southeast Asian country last week in his role as a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations Children's Fund (Unicef) to chat to kids made homeless by Typhoon Haiyan in November, Contactmusic reported.

Beckham was so moved during the visit that he took time out to film a personal message urging his supporters to do all they can to help children caught up in life-threatening disasters.

Unicef bosses are using the short film to launch the organisation's Humanitarian Appeal for Children for 2014, which aims to raise around 1.3 billion pounds to help 59 million kids living in danger around the world.
