January, 2018: St. Mary’s Academy – Alumna Spotlight: Charmika Schuster ’94, Founder of Global Mustard Seeds
Our January 2018 Haiti trip was a success!
Global Mustard Seed Missions Inc. is a 501(c)(3) Christian non-profit organization. We provide mobile medical care services within economically impoverished regions of developing countries. Clinics are sustained by doctors who are local to the areas we serve. Since 2012, we have mobilized clinics in Haiti and Tanzania.

“Above all of things, have fervent charity among yourselves.” (1 Peter 4:8, Holy Bible)
We are called Global Mustard Seed Missions Inc. (GMSM) because mustard seeds are very small, but they grow to become large trees. The Bible says, “It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took and cast into his garden; and it grew, and waxed a great tree; and the fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it.” (Luke 13:17). GMSM Founder, Charmika Schuster, is just one person but the organization she created continues to grow.
We provide mobile clinic outreach in developing countries among populations that lack access to basic health care. We focus on addressing acute and chronic diseases by partnering with local clinicians within and around the communities impacted by hardships. Services rendered are first initiated by volunteers from the U.S., including health care providers, and join forces with local clinicians to host mobile medical clinics. When possible, with sufficient support, local clinicians continue to run clinics after volunteer teams have withdrawn. We’ve already had the opportunity to expand from Haiti to Tanzania. In the future, we hope to serve more countries with our mobile medical clinic model.
