Brief History: In 1925, U.S. Marine Corps Sergeant Faustin E. Wirkus (1897-1948) was proclaimed by the residents of the island as King Faustin II. His “reign” lasted until 1929, when he returned to the United States. In the mid-1980s, British singer Cliff Richard recorded a song “La Gonave” for relief aid for the people of the island.

In considering, malnourishment as a adjective. It means "faulty nutrition due to inadequate or unbalanced intake of nutrients or their impaired assimilation or utilization" so the baby can look fine but still be malnourished. Ideally, this is just an opportunity to raise awareness and revenue to help bring food and care to infants. You might not like it but find ways to be the solution while celebrities such as Lewis Hamilton actively give back through his capacity.
