MANILA, Philippines—Hearts will melt.

After Super Typhoon Yolanda brought Taclobanons to their knees, football superstar David Beckham would give love and joy on Valentine’s Day as the former English captain would visit the area on Friday.

In a report by the MStars News, Beckham would visit the Philippines with the United Nations International Emergency Children’s Fund (Unicef).

“I will be in the Philippines with Unicef to visit different sites,” said Beckham who would miss a Valentine’s Day with his wife Victoria. “I won’t be with her but we will make sure we celebrate it before or after.”

Beckham previously played in an exhibition match in the country on Dec. 3, 2011 with his former club Los Angeles Galaxy of the Major League Soccer against the Philippine Azkals.
