Mustard Seed [Jersey]
Jersey Charity ref no. EM9010
Charity based in Jersey, Channel Islands,
“YOUR HELP MAKES A DIFFERENCE”.
Mustard Seed [Jersey] is a small charity set up in Jersey, Channel Isles in 1998. It is run from the home of the founder and financed by donations mainly from Jersey people. Mustard Seed is autonomous and is NOT a branch of any of the larger Mustard Seed charities in UK or elsewhere. Mustard Seed Jersey runs its own projects, administers all funding, and when relief aid is taken overseas then it is arranged and funded by local volunteers.
Mustard Seed Jersey is run by volunteers. Many groups, businesses and individuals give very generous discount for services and supplies. An army of volunteers work quietly in the background throughout the year, giving freely of time and resources to enable the charity to continue to function and make a difference to those in need.
The aim of the charity is to ease suffering in eastern Europe, by providing opportunities to enable people to become self-sufficient, through the taking of humanitarian aid, funding various projects and prayerfully supporting a number of projects.
Mustard Seed now focuses its work in the Bihor county of Romania and deliberately chooses to work with small trusts and foundations, as we feel they are in the greatest need, often having no other help from the west. These Romanian trusts monitor the aid distribution on our behalf, and advise us on where the need is.
Mustard Seed volunteers visit Romania regularly to keep well up to date with what is happening with various projects and to identify new needs.
Though the Romanians are now the main beneficiaries, they are not the only ones. Some / most of the volunteers have made new friends and sometimes found new purpose in life through their volunteering.
