Victoria Beckham - Victoria Beckham Makes Two-day Charity Trip To South Africa

Pop star-turned-fashion icon Victoria Beckham jetted to South Africa on Sunday (23Feb14) to lend her support to a new health initiative to prevent the spread of Hiv.

The designer teamed up with officials from Born Free, a charity which aims to end the transmission of Hiv from mothers to their kids, and spent time with medics at the Desmond Tutu Hiv Foundation in Cape Town to educate herself and witness their efforts in providing treatment for sufferers of the disease first-hand.

She was also given a tour of the Delft Community Health Centre, where she spoke to staff about their work to combat the Aids/Hiv epidemic, and on Monday (24Feb14), Beckham headed to the Children's Infection Disease Clinical Research Unit at the city's Tygerberg Hospital to meet with young patients, including a little girl named Esmonic.

Her representative tells the DailyMail.co.uk of the charity visit, "It was a whirlwind trip, however Victoria was inspired and motivated by the wonderful people she met and will continue her support to help raise awareness of the objective to end mother to child transmission of Hiv."
