Snapshot: A dirty job

Victoria Beckham's visit to a Peruvian rubbish dump will feature in a TV documentary this Sunday to raise awareness of projects funded by Sport Relief. 'A Mile In Their Shoes' will be shown at 6pm on BBC1, and will also focus on projects visited by presenters Patrick Kielty in India and Nick Knowles in Zambia. Beckham met 11-year-old Dinah, who lives and works on the waste site with her father, trying to find scraps of metal and glass to sell. "To witness their struggles first-hand is unforgettable," said Beckham. "To see children living with these challenges every day is heartbreaking, but they remain upbeat." Beckham spent two days in Las Lomas de Carabayllo, where she also visited a health clinic treating child skin diseases. She went on behalf of Childhope, which runs a project that helps children return to school. Picture courtesy of Kevin Cahill/Comic Relief.
