Pop star Madonna opens children’s hospital wing that her charity built in Malawi.

U.S. pop star Madonna on Tuesday opened a children’s hospital wing that her charity built in Malawi,saying it would make a difference in the lives of thousands of children in the southern African country.The Mercy James Paediatric Surgery and Intensive Care Ward, which could accommodate 50 patients at the Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital in the country’s second-largest city, Blantyre, was named after one of the four children Madonna adopted from Malawi.

According to the UN, Raising Malawi, funded by Madonna’s charity, is the first specialised health unit for children in the country of 18 million residents, which is among the 20 poorest in the world. Madonna said at the opening ceremony that she started planning to build the ward a decade ago when she was doing a documentary on children with HIV in Malawi.

The 58-year-old singer said her legal battle to adopt Mercy James in 2009 was a fight which she won, adding that “I fought for Mercy and I won. “I am here to say ‘never give up on your dream.Love conquers. “If you do things with love in your heart, you will conquer.” Madonna said the new paediatric ward would create superior learning environment for training Malawi’s next generation of doctors so that the country could be self-sufficient in that field.The President of Malawi, Peter Mutharika, described Madonna as “a loving mother. “We can now have our children with heart conditions undergo surgery; this centre is our national pride.”
