(ANI): Pop queen Madonna has been blamed for a downturn in
donations to the Malawi orphanage from where she adopted daughter
Mercy James. According to Daily Mirror, organisers claim they are
struggling to raise funds as people wrongly assume the pop
superstar has donated thousands of pounds.
They are adamant it's because of the Material Girl that
potential benefactors are failing to offer their help. They insist
she did not offer a huge donation.
"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," the Daily Star quoted a source as
saying. Head of the orphanage, Annie Chikhwaza, adds: "I was never
offered a penny. I did not expect any either."
