Soccer superstar and longtime UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador David Beckham is raising awareness for supporting HIV-positive children in a trip this week to southern Africa.

Last year, the 41-year-old launched his charity 7: The David Beckham UNICEF Fund (a shout-out to the lucky number worn on his soccer jerseys), and now he's getting to see first-hand how his efforts are helping kids living with the disease and its side effects.

"Had an inspiring time in Swaziland with @unicef to see how how my 7 Fund is supporting children living with HIV," Beckham captioned one Instagram post of his visit to the African country. The photo shows him sitting and smiling with a child in a striped shirt.

The dad-of-four also shared an image of himself surrounded by two moms as he cradled an infant. "It makes me very proud that the money that the 7 Fund provided has helped these amazing mothers to give birth to perfectly healthy HIV-negative babies," he wrote in the caption.
