I was looking for opportunities to do medical service work in a foreign country and happened upon China California Heart Watch. The organization sounded pretty appealing, but some of the negative reviews concerned me. When I looked up more information on it, I found that it is actually classified as "delinquent" through the state of California because it has not renewed its nonprofit license since 2011. I wasn't able to find any information on Charity Navigator so my guess is that it's still a small organization. My personal intuition is to not join since it's not an officially a registered charity and I've been burned in the past donating to illegitimate organizations. Just thought I would put up a note in case others were also considering joining an internship.
Will you volunteer or donate to this organization?
How much of an impact do you think this organization has?
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
