Madonna semble avoir fait une gaffe en Afrique.
Madonna has been pictured waving what appears to be a bottle of hand sanitiser at orphans in Malawi.
The unfortunate photograph was taken as the pop star left the Home of Hope orphanage in Mchinji, where her adopted son David, four, used to live.
Madonna, 51, has adopted two children from the impoverished southern African country and runs a non-profit organisation Raising Malawi to help vulnerable children.
She has been visiting Malawi with David and her other children Lourdes, Rocco and Mercy, who was adopted from the country earlier this year.
Earlier this week they joined their mother on the tour of the orphanage, where Raising Malawi has built several new buildings.
And contrary to appearances, the star has been willing to get her hands dirty - marking the launch of her school for girls by planting a sapling.
