Madonna spent Thanksgiving at the orphanage where she adopted her children.

The ‘Hung Up’ hitmaker – who has two biological children, Rocco and Lourdes and two adopted children, Mercy and David – made a visit to the Kondanani Orphanage today (27.11.14) with her two adopted kids to celebrate the holiday.

She shared a photo on Twitter of her being pushed on a swing by Mercy and wrote next to the photo: “Getting pushed around by Mercy James at Kondanani Orphanage! #livingforlove (sic)”

She also posted a photograph of Mercy and David outside the orphanage, tweeting: “The World is upside down! Count your blessings! They are endless…………… @raisingmalawi.

“Happy Thanksgiving from Malawi! #livingforlove (sic)”.

Whilst visiting the African country, Madonna also met with trainee surgeons at the Queen Elizabeth hospital.

She uploaded a picture of herself, her daughter and a group of the trainees, writing next to it: “Surgical Trainees at Queen Elizabeth Hospital! In the business of Miracles! @raisingmalawi #livingforlove (sic)”

Madonna – who founded the Raising Malawi charity with Michael Berg – was in the country to help launch a project, which will see a two-storey paediatric surgery and intensive care unit built nearby, providing an extra 50 beds.

She told the medical staff: “I’m happy to be associated with the future of your beautiful country.

“Children are your future.”

She also greeted the locals in their native language of Chichewa, saying: “Muli bwanji?” before joking: “I’m now a Malawian.”
