Goodwill Ambassador David Beckham

Posted Tuesday January 22, 2008 8:51 PM GMT

UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador David Beckham paid a visit to Sierra Leone to call international attention to the issue of child survival earlier this week.

"We can't turn a blind eye to the tens of thousands of young children who die every day in the developing world, mostly from causes that are preventable," Becks told press of the cause.

The 32-year-old added: "One in four children dies before reaching their fifth birthday – it's shocking and tragic especially when the solutions are simple – things like vaccinations against measles or using a mosquito net to reduce the chance of getting malaria."

According to an insider, the LA Galaxy soccer star visited a number of towns in the northern province before heading to the capital Freetown where he joined in a road side soccer match.
