This money grubbing purported charity was complicit in the death of a not 3 month old child, their negligence was disturbing in placing the child into a foster care environment where the foster parent going against every known procedure of due care, allowed little Kwon to suffocate by placing him on a blanket on an adult bed where by some unexplained suspicious method managed to go face down and suffocate.

This organization has a plethora of strange deaths associated with it and pulls in over 193 million dollars via sweetheart government contracts and political influence.

The CEO pulls down over 745,000 per year for killing children, a bad money grubbing charity not worthy of donations.
