Alinefe and Tifa Mwale who live in a brick and clay home in the impoverished village of Kayembe in Malawi, say they are delighted for four-year-old sisters Stella and Esther after they were adopted this week. The four-year-old twins, whose mother died in childbirth, are now at Madonna's £32million townhouse in New York after being flown to the US by private jet.
She says she’s glad they are part of a family and they now have a mother who will love them. I want them to grow old being loved and to have people who cherish them.
The twins had been left in an orphanage since birth after their mother Patricia died from a loss of blood following a caesarean section delivery in August 2012.
They do not have running water, electricity or a toilet in their home, and father Adam is regularly away looking for work. The state the children were born in is a state no child should be born into.
In a public statement Madonna said she felt 'compelled' to seek their adoption after hearing their tragic story.
