Madonna has reportedly sent gifts to Malawi orphans over the holidays.

According to Us Weekly, the popstar shipped several boxes and bales containing toys, clothing and sweets to six orphanages to the country.

“To my Malawi children on Christmas and Boxing Day. I wish I was with you. See you soon, M,” read a handwritten note that the singer included with the packages.

Malawi is the birthplace of Madonna’s adopted daughter Mercy.

The 52-year-old’s children, including 14-year-old Lourdes and 10-year-old Rocco, also signed Christmas cards for the orphans that read: “Mercy, David, Rocco, Lourdes and I send you a blessed Christmas to all of you!”

The gifts were distributed by Raising Malawi, a charity sponsored by Madonna.

The ‘Material Girl’ singer also held a holiday party at a Malawi orphanage near the town of Lilongwe, where she has taught Kabbalah classes. More than 1,000 people were invited to celebrate with the orphans.
