Friends of Madonna's adopted daughter sang carols at their orphanage... wearing Crocs sent as Xmas gifts by the star.
The footwear was in a truckload of presents from little Mercy, four, to the children she grew up with at the Kondanani orphanage in Malawi, delivered by an African Santa Claus.
Madonna, 51, also threw a party with fizzy drinks, hamburgers and chocolate at the orphanage and sent a Christmas card. The gifts were handed to more than 80 children with tags reading "Love from Mercy". Orphan Chitsanzo, six, said: "I am very happy my friend Mercy bought us shoes, toys, chocolates and cakes. They are very beautiful." Her friend Happiness, four, added: "I'm so happy I have received Christmas gifts. I have my own toys now."
Carers said it was the most presents the children had ever received.
Mercy moved to London in June to live with Madonna's other children - Lourdes, 13, Rocco, nine, and adopted Malawian David Banda.
