BPL Global is proud to announce its support of Insulate Ukraine.

The project seeks to temporarily restore bullet- and bomb-damaged buildings in towns and villages across war-torn Ukraine with specially designed plastic windows, allowing for uninhabitable homes to become liveable again.

BPL Global’s partnership with Insulate Ukraine has so far improved the lives of over 150 people in the past month, having insulated more than 100 homes – or over 500 windows – in the city of Izyum and two settlements in eastern Ukraine. This included making bombed-out homes in Karovii lar habitable and the restoration of a local administration building in Drobyshevo.

Insulate Ukraine’s windows were designed by PhD student Harry Blakiston Houston, from the University of Cambridge, who has since paused his studies to focus on the project.

In recent weeks, Insulate Ukraine has received national media attention including segments on the BBC and ITV news channels.

Harry stresses the importance of teaching local people to construct and install the windows. He adds: “We’re giving Ukrainians the power to solve this problem for themselves. All we need to do is show them how to make the windows and help them obtain the materials.” He adds: “The corporate support from BPL Global has been invaluable, allowing us to provide the necessary materials and man-power to improve the lives of hundreds who are suffering through the harsh realities of war.”

“We are proud to support the Insulate Ukraine project and promote the incredible work being done by Harry and the team.,” says Matthew Graham, Compliance Director and Chairman of BPL Global’s Charity Committee. “It is great to see that as the project’s first corporate sponsor, in only a matter of weeks, we have been able to make a real difference to those impacted by the conflict. We look forward to continuing to support Insulate Ukraine over the months ahead, as it looks to expand its work into further towns and cities in eastern Ukraine.”

Insulate Ukraine’s window design, which can be built in just 15 minutes, uses four layers of insulation comprising polyethylene, PVC piping, pipe insulation and duct tape. The cost is approximately £12 per square metre of window.

BPL Global has committed to support charities WeSeeHope and Justice and Care for another three years

BPL Global has been a proud supporter of WeSeeHope and Justice and Care for many years, and has renewed its investment in both organisations until at least 2025 in recognition of their vital work and the successful partnerships to date.

WeSeeHope is an international development organisation dedicated to creating long-term change for vulnerable children in Southern and Eastern Africa. It creates community-led programmes to support children and their parents or guardians, with a focus on education, child rights and economic empowerment. Its goal is for children who are isolated, exploited, or that have little in the way of opportunities, to develop the skills to change their own futures – and for their families and communities to support them along the way.

“We are honoured that BPL Global recognises the value of WeSeeHope and has chosen to continue supporting the important work that we do,” says Mark Glen, CEO, WeSeeHope. “Corporate partnerships like this one make such a difference to charities like ours. Last year, they made up 33% of our income, helping us to create sustainable change for thousands of vulnerable children.”

Justice and Care work in South Asia, mainland Europe and the UK to identify, rescue, and provide specialist support to survivors of modern slavery. The anti-slavery charity partners with police and law enforcement agencies to dismantle criminal networks and bring abusers to justice. They protect communities at risk from traffickers and work collaboratively with governments to tackle the issue at national scale, and pioneer new ideas to achieve systemic change.

“There are an estimated 50 million people enslaved today. Our research, based on police data, estimates there are more than 100,000 victims here in the UK. These are individuals and families exploited in car washes, nail bars, restaurants, and on construction sites, or working as domestic servants hidden behind closed doors,” says Jamie Fyleman, Director of Global Development and Communications, Justice and Care.

“Human trafficking will only end if we work together – we are so grateful for BPL Global’s ongoing support and encouragement. It makes our work possible and has brought freedom to many.”

“We have a longstanding commitment to working with charities like WeSeeHope and Justice and Care that help create long-term, positive social change,” says Matthew Graham, Compliance Director and Chairman of BPL Global’s Charity Committee. “It brings great pride to everyone at BPL that we are proponents of these remarkable charities, both of which are highly deserving of our ongoing support.”

Refugee routes Bike Project
Make an Enquiry

This summer, BPL Global is supporting The Bike Project, an innovative UK-based charity helping refugees and asylum seekers, many of whom are fleeing the war in Ukraine.

The Bike Project supplies refurbished bicycles to refugees looking to build a new life here in the UK. It might sound like a simple act, but a bike is a much-needed mode of transport for those experiencing significant financial and cultural hurdles. It means better access to services such as food banks, education, healthcare, and advice, as well as a form of exercise and the associate wellbeing benefits.

So far, the organisation has provided more than 9,500 bicycles to refugees arriving in the UK from places like Syria, Iran, Afghanistan, and recently Ukraine. Many of those helped by The Bike Project include vulnerable people and unaccompanied minors, with the youngest recipient aged just two years old.

As a charity, it relies solely on donations to cover professional refurbishment and delivery as well as support services, with each gifted bike costing around £100.

To support The Bike Project, BPL Global will be sponsoring staff as they participate in virtual cycling challenges over the summer, donating £3 for every mile cycled.

Each Refugee Route challenge represents a common journey made by refugees, ranging from Calais to Dover (51 miles), Damascus to Izmir (918 miles), and even Mariupol to London (1996 miles).

Five teams have already signed up: three from BPL’s London office, one in Singapore and one in New York. In total, they have committed to cycling over 5,000 miles by the end of September, with at least one team vowing to take on the 1996-mile Mariupol to London route.


“The Bike Project is incredibly grateful for BPL Global’s generous commitment of donating £3/mile cycled in their Refugee Routes challenge. With a goal of 5,000 miles, BPL’s contribution has the potential to help us refurbish and donate 180 bikes to asylum seekers and refugees. A bike is more than just transport, it supports wellbeing, improves access to support services and helps integration in the UK. Thank you!” – The Bike Project


We will be posting regular updates to the BPL Global LinkedIn page on the progress of our teams and our fundraising targets, so stay tuned.
