The president of Malawi Peter Mutharika thanked Madonna on Friday for bringing her Malawi-born children Mercy and David back to their birth country. Madonna has been visiting Malawi since 2006. She funds a number of orphanages and schools in the country. On Thursday she helped open a new 50-bed pediatrics ward in the commercial capital, Blantyre, that she helped fund.
During her latest trip to the Malawi, Madonna has brought her adopted children - Mercy James and David Banda along with son Rocco Ritchie to see her charitable efforts for themselves.
Madonna visited a school in the town of Kasungu on Sunday with the nine-year-olds by her side and while there announced her plans to build 300 schools across Malawi.
Madonna has been in the African country for the past week to visit schools and hospitals in her ongoing effort to develop the region. Bravo Madonna!
