Madonna visits Malawi hospital
The 57-year-old singer will tour the hospital to see how the construction of the unit is going on, reported New York Daily News.“This new facility is the first pediatric surgery and intensive care unit in any Malawi hospital. It will have an enormous impact on saving the lives of children.
“In addition to raising the quality and availability of health care, we are also preparing for the future by training more Malawian medical staff in specialized pediatric care,” she said.
The new unit funded by Raising Malawi, which Madonna set up in 2006 with Michael Berg will become the country’s first pediatric intensive care unit offering a 50-bed ward and a day clinic.
