The Pop star is set to go to Malawi to adopt a four-year-old girl Mercy James. But the charity claims that the orphans should be taken care of by their extended families and kids going abroad is not the solution.

Charity's spokesperson Dominic Nutt said: "What Madonna is doing verges on a puppy parade. People like her are looking for the most beautiful child. They wouldn't choose a child with a disability or special needs. It doesn't help to take one child out of an orphanage to a huge palace and buy them a pony. All these children who may only have one parent, or no parent, cannot be transported to Notting Hill by pop stars. Madonna's heart may be in the right place, but other mothers will look up to her and she's setting a terrible example."
