David Beckham voices support for famine victims in Africa

London: Soccer star David Beckham has voiced his support for a famine appeal in East Africa as 300,000 children are facing a food shortage crisis following one of the worst droughts in 60 years.

The 36-year-old footballer - who has three sons, Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, nine, and six-year-old Cruz, and seven-month-old daughter Harper Seven with wife Victoria - has highlighted the crisis in the country by urging people to get behind the operation, reported Sun online.

"There is nothing I wouldn`t do for my children and I am sure you feel the same. Families in East Africa need you to do something," he said.

Beckham, a Goodwill Ambassador for Unicef, was among a number of stars including British comedian Eddie Izzard, his former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson and Britain`s Prince William and Duchess Catherine to back the publication`s campaign after East Africa experienced one of its worst droughts for 60 years.
