We've always known that Victoria Beckham was way more than just Posh Spice (although that's totally great as well) with a fashion empire worth £100 million, the cutest family ever and her charity work as a UNAIDS global will ambassador all making her an absolute boss.

Today, the fashion mogul shared a powerful message on Instagram in recognition of this year's annual World AIDs Day.

Remembering the work she's undertaken with UNAIDS over the past three years since she became one of the charity's ambassadors, the 43-year-old mother of four posted inspirational words alongside a slide show of images depicting her alongside the men, women and children who have been part of the initiative.

Beckham captioned the post:

It's been 3 years since I became a UNAIDS global goodwill ambassador. I've undertaken field trips to Cape Town, Johannesburg, Ethiopia and Kenya and worked with some amazing NGO's like @ejaf , @Mothers2mothers & @BornFreeAfrica. I've visited orphanages, refuges, hospitals and schools and been overwhelmed by the incredible strength, courage, determination and hope, of the amazing men, women and children I've met. The on going battle to eradicate HIV & AIDS continues, we must join together and fight for an AIDS free future.

The designer followed that post, with a second heartwarming picture of herself and her son Brooklyn cradling a baby with the caption:

Today is #WorldAIDSDay. I am so proud to be able to share these experiences with my son @brooklynbeckham and have him join me in supporting @newlifehomeke on my field trip. We've come a long way on the journeys towards a world free of HIV and AIDS, but there is still a huge amount of hard work needed to to hit the #2020goals#909090 #fasttrack #zerodiscrimination#breaktheepidemichttps://www.globalgiving.org/donate/29159/new-life...

As of July 2017 over 20.9 million people in the world are living with HIV so messages like Beckham's raising awareness and highlighting the importance of ongoing work with charities such as UNAID are still so important.
