Madonna visits Kenyan slum

Madonna has visited Africa's largest slum.

The 'Ray of Light' singer is currently visiting Kenya and shared some images of a trip to Kibra, also known as Kibera, with Shining Hope for Communities, a charitable organisation which links free schools for girls to services for communities such as clean water and free health care.

Alongside one picture of young children she simply wrote: "Striking a Pose in Kibera! Rebel Hearts"

The 57-year-old star also posted a picture of a litter-strewn river and wrote: "Imagine this is where your water comes from! @shofco is working to change this in Kibera, Africa's largest slum.(sic)"

Madonna also shared pictures of a meeting she had with an "amazing" mother of 14.

Alongside one image, she wrote: "Hugging Mama Sopfie. This Amazing Woman lives in a 10 by 10 dwelling in Kibera with her 14 children-2 adopted. Her husband killed in a political uprising. She's starting her own business with the help of @shofco. God Bless Her! (sic)"

Another showed her with her children Lourdes, 19, Rocco, 15, David, 10, and Mercy, also 10, and she captioned the image: "Sitting with Mama Sofie, We are Humbled!(sic)"

The '4 Minutes' singer has also urged her fans to follow the Instagram page for her charity, Raising Malawi, to keep up to date with her philanthropic efforts.

Madonna - who adopted her two youngest children from Malawi - wrote: "Follow my new account @raisingmalawi and find out what we are doing next and how and what you can do to help!"

The new account features a number of images of the organisation's work, as well as a link to donate to the charity.

The donation page states: "Help feed a child. Help educate a girl. Help provide life-saving surgeries.

"This page is for general donations to Raising Malawi."
