Madonna & Her Kids Open Children's Hospital in Malawi

Madonna hugs her daughter Mercy James during the opening ceremony of the Mercy James Children’s Hospital at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital in Blantyre, Malawi on Tuesday (July 11)

The hospital was funded by the singer’s Raising Malawi charity. Madonna has adopted four children from the country: Mercy James, 11, David Banda, 11, and her new twin girls. All four were in attendance and David and Mercy spoke on stage during the ceremony.

“The Mercy James Center remains not only a world-class intensive care hospital, but also a superior learning environment to train the next generation of Malawian healthcare workers,” Madonna said during her speech (via CNN). “This is as much about healing as it is about empowerment.”

“It is a great honor to know this hospital is named after me,” Mercy James said in her speech. “But what’s more important is that we may help many kids and save many lives.”

Madonna Celebrates Thanksgiving With Her Children Following Rocco's Arrest

Madonna celebrated Thanksgiving in a special way, following the arrest of her oldest son Rocco.

The 55-year-old entertainer took to her Instagram to share sweet portraits of all four of her children including 10-year-old Mercy, 20-year-old Lourdes and 11-year-old David.

Later, Madonna was joined by Mercy and David at the Ali Forney Center to share Thanksgiving with the children there.

“Had so much fun sharing Thanksgiving at the Ali Forney Center in Brooklyn! This center protects LGBT Youth from the harms of homelessness and empowers them to reclaim their lives. Each year the Ali Forney Center provides care for over 1,200 youth who are rejected by their family due to their LGBT identity. AFC provides these youth with tools they need to become independent and more importantly, AFC provides these youth with the love and support they are denied by their families. Because everyone deserves to be loved and everyone deserves a home. πŸ’™!!!” Madonna wrote.

Madonna Posts Christmas Message for Son Rocco Amid Custody Battle

Madonna has written a message for her 15-year-old son Rocco Ritchie to wish him a merry Christmas amid her custody battle with ex Guy Ritchie.

“Merry X-mas to the Sun-shine of my Life! β­•οΈβŒβ­•οΈβ­•οΈβŒβ­•οΈβŒβ­•οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈ,” the 57-year-old entertainer captioned the picture on Instagram.

Rocco reportedly refused to spend Christmas with his mom and she went to court to make Guy return him to New York City. As the photo Madonna posted is an old one, it’s not clear if her son is definitely with her for the holiday.

Madonna also posted photos of her three other children – Lourdes Leon, 19, David Banda, 10, and Mercy James, 9. See them in the gallery below!
