00311678-f40c6cb8cfd92465176ba744c9449fd2-arc614x376-w614-us1Pop star Madonna who co-founded Raising Malawi Foundation after adoption her son David Banda in 2006, has given the group US$1 million to improve its public persona after being linked with the cult Kabbalah Center for years, it has been reported.

Last year Madonna donated $1,250,000 directly to Kabbalah. This year, the $1 million goes to Raising Malawi, which makes a lot of claims about work it’s doing in the impoverished southern African country from which Madonna adopted two children – David Banda and Mercy James.

The pop star was appointed by President Peter Mutharika as Malawi’s Goodwill Ambassador for Child Welfare.
