Rocker Bryan Adams has thrown his weight behind a campaign to help build schools and hospitals in Zambia.
The Summer of '69 hitmaker has signed up as a patron of Build IT International, an aid organisation providing construction skills to adults in the African nation to boost education and health facilities.
Adams says, "I agreed to become a patron for Build IT International simply from seeing the results and dedication they have to making the lives of people better by teaching a trade and providing spaces to educate children."
The organisation's bosses hope Adams' support will help boost its profile around the globe.
A spokesman for the charity says, "We are thrilled that Bryan Adams has become patron of Build IT. Bryan's enthusiastic support will help to raise the charity's profile and recruit new supporters."
