Former Spice Girl Salutes The Rocket Man And His Foundation

Written by Chief Editor.

Victoria Beckham paid tribute to Elton on World AIDS Day by highlighting the “incredible work” he does through his charity.

The fashion designer took to Instagram yesterday to mark the occasion by first reflecting on her role as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), which she took on in 2014.

“It’s been 5 years since I became a #UNAIDS global goodwill ambassador and I’m proud to help raise awareness on the fight towards an AIDS free future,” the former member of the Spice Girls wrote. “We must unite and use our voices, to join together and discuss the issues around the ongoing battle to eradicate HIV and AIDS.”

She then turned her attention to Sir Elton and his husband David Furnish for their efforts through the Elton John AIDS Foundation.

“Today on #WorldAIDSDay, I also look to two of my favorite people @eltonjohn and @davidfurnish and the incredible work that @ejaf does to test, treat and support people living with HIV all over the world,” she shared.
“I traveled with @ejaf to South Africa to see how they support mothers living with HIV from passing it onto their children during pregnancy. As a mother of four, I can relate to doing everything that I could to protect my children and @ejaf helps mothers so that their babies are born free of HIV.
“Their foundation works in some of the most difficult places but doesn’t discriminate and will help anyone, anywhere at risk or living with HIV.”
“We love u (sic) Elton and David,” she concluded.

Responding to the praise, Furnish commented, “@victoriabeckham Thanks for all your support. Together, we will end AIDS.”

Elton replied as well, writing, “@victoriabeckham You too have been a great support on the fight to rid our world of AIDS. Thanks for everything that you do.”
