Help support Phil Blackwood

Given by 82 generous donors in around 7 months

Phil Blackwood is a typical kiwi guy, working hard to help his young family. Phil is currently imprisoned and needs your help.


Phil was imprisoned in December 2014 while working as a bar manager in Myanmar due to an advertising campaign which breached local laws. Phil was not aware he was breaking the law and has apologised for his mistake. Please help Phil with his legal costs so that he can come home. He is a great guy who would do anything to help anyone.

Catherine MacGillivray's involvement (page creator)

I'm involved in helping Phil because we have been friends for over 15 years.

Phil would do the same thing for me if I was in trouble. He has a young family and I want him to come home and see his daughter grow up.

Hope everything works out OK. I only met Phil a handful of times, and thought he was a real nice guy. Good luck.

Phil was a flatmate and friend for over 2 years in Yangon. Like an older brother, he looked out for me. He's the coolest Kiwi I know. I'm heartbroken that this has materialized. Here for support if needed. Prayers for Phil's family, friends, and especially Noemi and Sasha.
