Mite Scheme

Long Buckby United Reformed Church

The Mite Scheme was created in 1986 by Roy Barnett MBE. Since then it has grown and is now supported by almost 100 different organisations, mainly but not exclusively Christian churches of various denominations. The money raised by the Mite scheme is used to fund Oral Rehydration Therapy (ORT) for severely dehydrated children. The war in Syria has reached a devastating seven years. Since January 2018 alone, it has been reported that more than 1,000 children have been killed and injured in Syria. More than 2.6 million children have been forced to flee Syria and are living in precarious conditions in surrounding countries. Unicef is working tirelessly to protect Syrian children and give them hope for a happy future. We’re there in Syria and in the refugee camps, ensuring children have life-saving supplies including medicine, healthcare and food. But we’re also providing longer-term support to help children, young people and families rebuild their lives. We’re providing education, psychosocial support and safe spaces for them to play and have some much-needed fun.
