Blake has joined forces with School In A Bag and RRT to deliver aid to Ukraine.




In response to the unfolding crisis in Ukraine, Blake has partnered with School In A Bag to fund School Bags as part of their Ukraine Appeal. Blake’s involvement saw enough funds raised to package 352 school b ags with essential learning resources for a child to learn for a year as well as a hygiene kit, face cloth, water bottle and a lunch box and spork.

The bags have since been sent to a team at the charity Te Aud Romaina, a charity Blake partnered with two years ago, whilst distributing school bags to the children orphaned at Guru Humorului. Te Aud Romania’s location boarders Ukraine, just 60km or a one hour car drive to the border and they are currently being inundated with families fleeing the fighting.




In recent weeks, Blake partnered with the Rapid Relief Team who recently launched Operation 322 to deliver emergency food and personal care supplies to those displaced.

With essential food and personal care products in high demand, RRT loaded trucks with food boxes filled with non-perishable food items, care kits equipped with personal care products, baby care kits containing formula and nappies, bottled water and blankets.

So far 28 truckloads of emergency aid have now reached displaced Ukrainians. Blake is delighted to have donated seven pallets of food parcels which totals 5292 meals.
