There might be some truth to what Tasha is saying- unless the charity is honest (like Madonna's), you might not have any control over where the money goes. We have that problem even in the US. When I give to a charity, I want to make sure that money goes directly to the right people who are truly in need of help, not to line the pockets of some rich con artist.

But Madonna has a pure heart and taking care of the adopted children is noble. Madonna is so charitable, and a good role model for her children and the world! She brings the races, sexes and everyone together with her music, charity and good work.

She's making an assumption that Madonna bought her kids. Maybe she did and maybe she didn't. Although I strongly believe the latter. And if she did buy them, who cares? She gave them a loving home with money and opportunities. She put two kids in a home filled with opportunities. And they could be something great now.

I agree with all your comments! Madonna has done so much for Africa- adopting 2 children, setting up a school, raising money & awareness of the poverty in Africa etc- & she gets nothing but criticism! I admire Madonna for her ongoing generosity to Africa, despite all the negative flak she receives, she keeps on going! Madonna deserves an award for her kindness- not spiteful condemnation. Isn't it interesting how Bob Gedolf gets nothing but plaudits for his African charity efforts. I think there is a sexist element to it- Madonna is a Rich & Powerful White Woman- and this challenges the system/ is threatening still in many parts of the world in 2013!

This a new attack against Madonna's wonderful action in
Africa orchestrated by the French news agency AFP.

A month ago, the AFP amplified without any care for the motivation of the author of the declaration, the unfair attack of a Malawian minister downgrading Madonna's efforts in building schools in Malawi.

Either somebody particularly dislike Madonna at the AFP or these agencies have real problems of content to transmit to their clients. In any case, this is sad and pathetic.

"It is not enough just to send cheques." Ummmm something tells me that the checks that they receive on behalf of Madonna are not being returned for not being "hands-on" enough.

So I guess its better to let a kid in Africa starve to death then to give them a home with food and clothes. I laugh when people say its not right to take these kids away from their so called "culture". Since when is extreme poverty a culture enriching lifestyle.

What is that woman talking about? Really? She pretends to leave those children in Africa? This is what I called people w no vision, Madonna has done more than adopt those kids, they're given the opportunity of a better life, better education, better future, than staying in Africa. If africans cant do better for themselves, why this is an issue then. Because of their culture?? Really? Wake up is 2013 already.
