Madonna blâmée de n'avoir fait aucune donation à l'orphelinat de Mercy au Malawi.
Madonna has put donors off giving money to Malawi kids' home, it's claimed
Exclusive By Danielle Gusmaroli 29/12/2009
The orphanage where Madonna adopted Mercy James earlier this year is struggling to raise funds as donors are turned off by the pop star's involvement.
Organisers say potential benefactors wrongly believe that Madonna, 51, pledged thousands of pounds to the Kondanani home in Malawi.
A source said: "We find it a day-to-day struggle to survive. Some days we don't even know if there will be enough food to feed the babies.
"Donors are not giving because they are under the impression Madonna paid us vast amounts of her money."
He added that the Christianrun home wouldn't take her money anyway because of her links with Kabbalah.
Head of the orphanage Annie Chikhwaza said of Mercy's adoption: "I was never offered a penny. I did not expect any either."
Madonna also adopted David Banda from Malawi.

Madonna has been blamed for a downturn in donations to an orphanage in Malawi, Africa - because people wrongly assume the pop superstar has handed the owners thousands of dollars.
The Material Girl adopted daughter Mercy James from the Kondanani home earlier this year (09) but since the venue was linked to the singer, staff have been struggling to raise the required funds.
Organisers are adamant it's because of Madonna that potential benefactors are failing to offer their help - and they insist she did not hand them a huge donation, according to Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper
A source tells the publication, "We find it a day-to-day struggle to survive. Some days we don't even know if there will be enough food to feed the babies. Donors are not giving because they are under the impression Madonna paid us vast amounts of money."
Head of the orphanage, Annie Chikhwaza, adds: "I was never offered a penny. I did not expect any either."
Madonna also adopted son David Banda from another Malawian orphanage in 2006.

Madonna to be blamed for “no donation” to orphanage!

The Kondanani home in Malawi has been facing a trauma of not receiving donations. Wonder why? As per reports from Mirror and Contactmusic, it’s because of Madonna!
We all know that Madonna is the queen of pop and an entertainer to the true sense of the word. What we were unaware of all these days was that Madonna didn’t pay even a penny to the Malawi home when she had adopted Mercy James in 2009. And even the donors didn’t know this!
Madonna, ironically, has been assumed to have donated huge amounts to the Malawi orphanage and the donors have never felt the urge to pay more to the kids’ home. This has put the orphanage under complicated situations as they have to fight to meet their daily needs.
According to one source, the people are struggling hard to have even the meals properly. There are some days when they are left clueless of what to feed the kids. The same source reveals that the people think Madonna had paid handsomely to the home when she adopted Mercy James earlier this year.
Annie Chikhwaza, the head of the Malawi orphanage commented on that, “I was never offered a penny. I did not expect any either.”
Gosh! A real shame for such a big celebrity! We hope Madonna reads this and offers a helping hand to the unfortunate kids for their welfare and a secured future…at least now!
