Robbie Travels To Mexico City For Soccer Aid 2012

2012

Robbie and Jonny Wilkes, friend and co-founder of Soccer Aid, have been in Mexico City this week with children's charity UNICEF. They were there to visit some of the city´s most vulnerable children and make a short film, raising awareness of the children that will be helped by the proceeds from Soccer Aid 2012. The film will be shown during Soccer Aid on ITV 1, on May 27th 2012.
 
Filming took place in some of the poorest parts of Mexico City, including the slums of Itzapalapa. Robbie and Jonathan spent time with an 18-month-old child, called Kimberley, and her five brother and sisters who live hand to mouth in cramped, dirty conditions and are at risk of abuse and disease. They also visited a shelter which helps children and their families by giving them a safe place to sleep as well as clean water to drink and nutritious food to eat.

"Meeting children in Mexico City really showed me how dangerous the world can be for a child," said Robbie, "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.  It´s also a brilliant football match, and I can tell you it´s going to be bigger and better than ever this year.  Why's that?  Well, I’m definitely going to get the winner’s cup back from Michael Sheen.
 
Please, help make Soccer Aid 2012 the best one yet – come and join us at Old Trafford and support UNICEF´s vital work for children.”

  • Hi Robb! Truth did a great act of solidarity! hopefully many will join artists like you and do more events like this. It must be wonderful to see the faces of these children and the family when they receive help.
    Although these tasks rests with the government, but like everyone's the same never give them attention. Only when political campaigners are humble!, And do not care who really suffer. are experienced fighting only for power .... But thank God there are still people like you who are willing to lend a hand to these people! Segui so! God will reward you!
    I admire you more Robb every time! I love you! ...
