Madonna made a return trip to Malawi today (April 16th) to continue her charity work in the impoverished southern African country. Meanwhile, rumors that the pop songstress was visiting the country to find a sister for her newly adopted son, David Banda, have been refuted by the head of a Malawian orphanage as well as Madonna's publicist, Liz Rosenberg.
Rosenberg said that her client was visiting to continue her work with her Raising Malawi organization and denied speculation of another adoption.
"She is overseeing the building of a children's health care center. She is absolutely not adopting another baby," Rosenberg said in a statement.
Yacinta Chapomba, a director of local aid group Consol Homes, said a childcare center built with the help of Madonna's organization was set to have an opening ceremony on Monday (April 16th), which - to the joy of those involved - Madonna ended up attending.
Madonna's laudable organization aims to provide food, education and shelter for up to 4,000 children.
Malawi is among the poorest countries in the world, with rampant disease and hunger, aggravated by periodic droughts and crop failure. Over 14 percent of its 12 million residents have HIV, making Madonna's efforts ever so important.
