Former SPICE GIRL Victoria Beckham is urging the Chinese public to show more love and care for children suffering from leukaemia in a new public service television announcement.

Beckham, married to British soccer superstar David Beckham, appears in a 60-second TV spot with 10 young Shanghai leukaemia patients, according to the SHANGHAI CHARITY FOUNDATION.

The organisation's spokesman MA ZHONGQI says, "What Victoria displays to the public is not only her personal charm as an international superstar but also the image of a loving mother."

Zhongqi says the foundation hopes to invite other international celebrities to participate in events.
