Victoria Beckham took some time out of her busy fashion schedule earlier this week to pay a trip to Cape Town in support of Born Free, a charity which aims to end the transmission of HIV from mothers to their children.
The 39-year-old mum-of-four left her designer wares at home and stepped into a simple black tee and skinnies to show her support in South Africa for a couple of days, later describing her rewarding trip as ‘educating and inspiring.’
We managed to get our hands on some exclusive snaps of VB looking gorgeous and natural with barely there make-up and a chic ponytail as she chatted to staff and mentor mothers from the Mother2Mother programme at the Delft Community Health Centre and bonded with children at the Desmond Tutu HIV Foundation.
‘It was a whirlwind trip, however Victoria was inspired and motivated by the wonderful people she met and will continue her support to help raise awareness of the objective to end mother to child transmission of HIV’, the designer’s rep told Mail Online.
VB also took to Twitter on thank everyone she met in Cape Town, writing: ‘Thank you @bornfreeafrica and the inspiring doctors, mothers and children that I met today. #JoinBornFree x vb’.
She later added: ‘Thanks @UNAIDS @m2mtweets @florencengobeni for sharing your incredible work to eliminate mother to child transmission of HIV x vb’.
