Madonna opens Pediatric surgery institute in Malawi.

Pop diva Madonna has announced that the Mercy James Institute for Pediatric Surgery and Intensive Care will open at the Queen Central Hospital in Blantyre, Malawi, on July 11.




The unit, named after Madonna’s Malawi-born daughter, Mercy James, is the first of its kind in Malawi.

The child care unit is funded by the 58-year-old singer’s charity Raising Malawi in collaboration with the minister of health.

“When you look into the eyes of children in need, wherever they may be, a human being wants to do anything and everything they can to help, and on my first visit to Malawi, I made a commitment that I would do just that.

“As we approach the opening of the Mercy James Institute for Pediatric Surgery and Intensive Care, I’d like to thank everyone who has joined me on this unbelievable journey. What started out as a dream for Malawi and her children has become a reality, and we couldn’t have done it without your support,” Madonna said in a statement.

The new wing will help Queen Elizabeth hospital double the number of surgeries performed on children each year, while also serving as a training center for local doctors in Southern Africa.

“Malawi has enriched my family more than I could have ever imagined. It’s important for me to make sure all my children from the country maintain a strong connection to their birth nation, and equally important to show them that together, humans have the power to change the world for the better,” Madonna added.

Yes, that's the one the Naija "Yeyebrities and business churches" will not imitate!

Will Nigerian celebrities emulate this one? No! If it is to wed in Dubai, stay in a 20k dollars a night hotel, do drugs etc. they will imitate it quickly and brag on social media.
How many Nigerian celebrity has ever adopted a needy child?

Strong woman. She was said to be dropped by Tupac Shakur (Tupac's ex) because of her race. But apparently, that doesn't undermine her love for Blacks.

Thanks Madonna
