Madonna to visit Malawi

Pop diva Madonna is coming to Malawi on Sunday July 10 to inspect a 50-bed pediatrics ward at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital in the commercial capital Blantyre, the first dedicated pediatric intensive care unit in the country that her charity organisation, Raising Malawi, has been building.

Sarah Ezzy, director of the charity Raising Malawi, said Madonna is building a two-storey free-standing 50-bed paediatric surgical ward which will also have an Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

“The new facility, which will be completed by the end of the year, will have three operating theatres for surgery in children, a 50 bed ward, a day clinic, and the country’s first ever paediatric intensive care unit,” Ezzy said.
