Madonna Opens Medical Facility in Malawi in Daughter Mercy's Name: See the Emotional Family Pics!
By Rachel McRady
It was a family affair for Madonna and her children on Tuesday. The 58-year-old pop icon opened The Mercy James Institute for Paediatric Surgery and Intensive Care in Blantyre, Malawai, which is the first facility of its kind to be built in the country.
"It was not an easy battle," Madonna said with clear emotion in her voice (via Reuters)."The judge refused me because I was recently divorced. We hired lawyers, went to the Supreme Court. But I never gave up, I never backed down…I fought for Mercy and won. We fought for this hospital and won. Love conquers all."
