Robbie Williams Visits Mexico City Slums For New Sports Charity Film
The Take That star jetted off to Mexico this week (begs16Apr12) with children's charity Unicef and his own charitable organisation Soccer Aid to shoot a short film to coincide with a fundraising soccer match featuring Williams and other celebrities which is scheduled for next month (May12).
And he admits the trip to Mexico's crowded capital really opened his eyes to the problems of global poverty.
Williams says, "Meeting children in Mexico City really showed me how dangerous the world can be for a child, and how hard it can be for them to even survive.
"Right now, children are suffering and it shouldn’t be like this. Soccer Aid is so great because it helps children just like this, living unbelievably tough lives all around the world, to have a better future."
The singer will captain the England side at the Soccer Aid match in Manchester, England on 27 May (12), while Welsh actor Michael Sheen will lead a squad representing the Rest Of The World.
Williams announced baby news in March (12), revealing his wife Ayda is pregnant with their first child.
