Justin Beiber visits the Philippines

Thursday December 12, 2013

Justin Beiber visited the Philippines this week to raise awareness and money for his campaign #GiveBackPhilippines which helps communities devastated by Typhoon Haiyan.

So far the pop superstar and the foundation have raised over $639,000 (£389,515) and hope to raise $1million (£609,570) for the relief efforts.

During his trip the 19-year-old visited a UNICEF relief shelter in a City Central School and a San Jose School, which are currently being used as temporary living areas for over 300 families whose homes were destroyed by the typhoon.

Speaking about his charity visit Justin said: "I want to bring as much awareness to the devastated areas as I can. Seeing the suffering first hand and interacting with the community was an experience I will never forget."
