It was the former soccer star's second trip to the area.
After hitting New York Fashion Week with his family on Sunday, David Beckham has jetted to the Philippines.
On Thursday, he flew to Tacloban, one of the areas in the Philippines that was hit the word by Typhoon Haiyan in November last year.
According to an AFP report, hundreds of survivors rushed out of their tent shelters to greet the retired soccer star, even though he seemed unfamiliar to many citizens of the Philippines.
"He's so handsome. I heard he plays for the Azkals," gushed mother-of-four Darilyn Bascug, referring to the Philippines' national football team, reports AFP.
It was the second visit to the Philippines for Beckham, 38, in his role as a goodwill ambassador for the UN Children's Fund.
He visited a shelter for former street children in Manila during his first visit in 2011. And he and wife Victoria donated designer clothes to raise funds for typhoon victims.
The tattooed Beckham, sporting a black UNICEF T-shirt chatted with survivors and spent time with children in a makeshift classroom, according to Sky News. He removed his shoes as he entered another tent, visiting a family and stroking a sleeping infant's hands.
He said: "I was humbled to visit Tacloban and see how people are still so full of spirit despite the devastation they have suffered."
