021314-david_main.jpgFormer LA Galaxy player and football star David Beckham arrived in Tacloban today, Thursday to help Yolanda survivors with the United Nations International Emergency Children’s Fund (UNICEF) 

According to reports on ABS-CBNNews.com, David arrived in Manila at around 11AM. He arrived at the Tacloban Convention Center around 1:40 p.m.

The UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador appealed last November for people to donate to those who survived the biggest typhoon to hit land. He and wife, Victoria Beckham also held an auction of their famous outfits and donated the cash for the cause.

David last visited the Philippines in 2011 with the LA Galaxy for an exhibition game against the Philippine Askals.
