Madonna donates adopted sons clothes, books, toys to Malawian orphansFebruary 24th, 2009 - 1:27 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, February 24 (ANI): Pop superstar Madonna has sent boxes of clothes, books and toys for the needy children staying at the same Malawian orphanage from where she adopted her son David.
The Music hitmaker adopted the tot with ex-husband Guy Ritchie from the Home of Hope Orphanage Centre in 2006.
According to reports, the organisation’’s executives were recently left surprised when they received packages labelled “from David Ritchie to friends at Home of Hope - Malawi”.
Sources have revealed that the boxes contained second-hand clothes from three-year-old David’’s own wardrobe.
They add that the parcel also contained a variety of toys and autographed copies of Madonna’’s children’’s book, English Roses.
“These are clothes David can no longer use; they say he is quite a big boy now so he cannot use most of the clothes Madonna bought him immediately after he was adopted. The children (at the orphanage) were excited to receive the clothes,” Contactmusic quoted a source as saying.
However, top officials at the orphanage refused to confirm that the parcel came from Madonna.
“We have lots of friends across the globe who send us stuff from time to time,” said orphanage director Lucy Chipeta. (ANI)
