Edward Barber has been to a number of cities around the world thanks to his work as a celebrity.

Just last year, Edward and his love team partner Maymay Entrata have traveled to Hawaii, London, Germany, and most recently, Dubai.

But out of all countries he has been to, the young Kapamilya actor wants to return to Thailand.

At his latest endorsement shoot at Eastwood City in Libis last January 22, Edward spoke to PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) about the non-profit organization, Friends of Thai Daughters.

He said, "It's a charity that saves girls from human trafficking, sex slaves, but it also saves them before they get into it.

"So, for example, their parents are drug addicts and they were willing to sell their daughter for drugs, the charity will save them before they get that far."

Edward learned about this charity before he became a part of Pinoy Big Brother: Lucky 7 in 2016.

"It's something you don't really see a lot in normal society, parang ganun. They just have a lot of happiness to share.

"There is a girl called Napa, she's four or six years old. She keeps on calling me 'brother' in Thai.
