Its mission is to help reduce poverty and provide humanitarian aid in disasters and emergencies around the world and in doing so raises awareness within the Island collecting money for those who are in troubles. As well as donating money, Jersey has a long legacy of sending volunteers overseas. Since the first work party in 1972, hundreds of Jersey people have donated their time and skills to help others in developing countries.
