World renowned superstar, Madonna recently returned to Malawi for the one year anniversary of The Mercy James Pediatric Hospital. She arrived with all six of her children: 21-year-old Lourdes Leon(with ex Carlos Leon), 17-year-old Rocco Ritchie (with ex Guy Ritchie), Mercy James and David Banda, both 12, and 5½-year-old twins Estere and Stella.
On Monday, Madonna posted an Instagram photo with her children in the lobby of the Mercy James Centre for Pediatric Surgery and Intensive Care in Blantyre, Malawi.
On July 11, 2017, Madonna’s charity Raising Malawi built the Mercy James Centre, the first children’s hospital in the country. The facility has become a training center of excellence for Southern Africa, with more local doctors acquiring the skills needed to perform pediatric surgery. In a country with only four pediatric surgeons and 50% of the population under 15 years old, this new facility has made a significant difference in the lives of Malawian children.
