More than 170 people have been killed and 200,000 displaced by torrential rain and flooding in Malawi.

Large areas in the south are underwater and homes, crops and livestock have been washed away.

The continuing rain is making rescue operations difficult.

Madonna who adopted son, 9-year-old David Banda and has another Malawi-born child, Mercy Chifundo James,  has encouraged her Instagram  followers to “say a prayer for Malawi” and donate what they can to the United Nations Children’s Fund (Unicef) to help those in need.

She shared a snap of the extreme flooding online and issued a call to action by captioning the photo: “Malawi needs our help! Massive Floods have killed at least 48 and displaced more than 100 thousand! People!!! Please join me and @UnicefUSA in providing emergency aid to those who lost their homes and loved ones! Donate.”

Madonna established the Raising Malawi foundation to build schools for disadvantaged kids across the nation.

She was appointed the Goodwill Ambassador for Child Welfare by the country’s President Peter Mutharika during her last year’s visit to the southern African nation.

Colleagues in Malawi, especially Blantyre. Let us help our friends in Chilobwe with any items. Our friends are helpless, they have lost everything they had.

Get out that dress that has been in the ward robe for the whole 2014 without seeing the outside world, those pots that are in the cartons, those plates in the display cabinets as we call them and assist our… Read more »

Madonna uses her Instagram to swindle money from people in the name of assisting poor people in Malawi, but ends up keeping all the donated money to enrich herself. Let us hope she is not up to her usual tricks again and that all the money donated will be put to the intended use in full and not putting part of it pa lilime, very cunning woman.
