The pop super star wants to care for 1,000 kids at the center she’s setting up in Malawi.

Generous Madonna will also use her fortune to support other struggling orphanages in the country, the birthplace of her adopted children David and Mercy! Wow — way to go Madonna!Madonna, 52, reveals her plans in a new TV documentary, American Revolutionaries: The Hitmakers. She says, “My short term goals are to build an orphan care center that will service and reach at least 1,000 children and I’m also actively involved in funding several orphanages that already exist.”

Madonna adopted David, 5, from a Malawian orphanage in 2006 and returned for 6-year-old Mercy in 2009. And it’s great to see she’s still committed to helping kids in their homeland.

Is she your favorite charitable star, HollyMoms?
