Contributions from people like you are necessary to make a difference in rendering essential medical care abroad.
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 When possible, with sufficient support, local clinicians continue to run clinics after volunteer teams have withdrawn.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.

“Several hundred pounds of locally-purchased pharmaceuticals occupy our spare bedroom, awaiting transport to Charmika Schuster’s rural mobile medical clinics planned for 1000+ patients near Moshi, Tanzania. […] USA cost would likely be over $10,000, vs $3100 here. Charmika is quite meticulous to maximize efficiency of Global Mustard Seed Missions, and negotiating local drug prices is a big part of that, while it still injects economic stimulus into the local community.” – Dan Schuster

As little as $5 could cover the treatment of at least one patient. It’s never to late to support our efforts – make your contribution today!
