The Raising Malawi foundation was founded by Madonna in 2006. The organization provides community support, education & health programs, and scholarships for the orphans in the country. In 2017, the organization opened a children’s hospital in Blantyre, the second-largest city in Malawi. This year the foundation opened 14 schools for more than 10,000 children across the country. Since the Raising Malawi launch, Madonna has also adopted four children from the country.
