Justin Bieber visits Typhoon Haiyan victims in the Philippines

Justin Bieber plays basketball with children survivors of Typhoon Haiyan during his unannounced visit on Dec. 10, 2013 at Tacloban city.

Justin Bieber visited young victims of Typhoon Haiyan on Tuesday, traveling to the Philippines after launching a worldwide campaign to help those affected by the deadly storm.

Justin arrived from Australia and flew to Tacloban, the devastated capital of central Leyte province, where he distributed shirts, toys and basketballs to children.

One girl told Manila’s TV5 Television, describing her feelings on seeing her idol:

It was like we were not hit by the typhoon, like Yolanda [Typhoon Haiyan] never came.

He played a very beautiful set. He played a series of Christmas songs and some of his hits as well, including `Baby.

Justin took a quick walk around the school and checked a temporary learning space that was packed with about 300 children, including some from the local neighborhood, before moving to an outdoor stage to sing.

True Happiness

At another school also used as temporary shelter, Justin played basketball with some boys and posed gamely for pictures with his fans.

Angela Kearney, UNICEF’s emergency coordinator for Haiyan response, said in a statement:

Justin brought a lot of joy, hope and cheer to the hundreds of children who were there.

The money he raises will give some of the children who were caught in the path of Haiyan access to education, vaccinations, better nutrition, clean water and sanitation.

    If someone says it’s for publicity, tell them what they are donating to those kids. Also, while they are behind computers, he’s actually there doing something such as helping to build schools and giving away gifts and clothes. Finally, the media jumps whenever he makes a mistake, why don’t they jump on this story? Giving to others bores them?

    See this is what I mean, Justin has a HUGE heart and no one even notices it because their to busy judging him trying to see when he will screw up ,but then when he does do something like this no one even cares because all they want is for him to make another mistake, I mean come on he’s human he gonna make mistakes, we all do and for him to being doing something like this for those kids that’s wonderful and so amazing, look at those kids faces,do you think their gonna care how many mistakes he made if he’s doing something like this for them? No their not because they know that Justin would not be doing any of that if he didn’t care, Justin has a HUGE heart just TAKE TIME TO NOTICE IT :)
    Love You, Justin
