LIVE: Office chat with Douglas Gilgallon on Medical Aid for Palestinians (Map)

Independence Live catches up with Douglad Gilgallon on his fundraising for Map

ON 17 June 2017, Douglas Gilgallon from Glasgow and member of the group SNP Friends of Palestine, climbed to the top of Ben Nevis with the Palestinian flag flying from a pole attatched to his backpack.

This act of solidarity was to raise money for the charity MAP (Medical Aid for Palestinians). The next day when he posted his achievement on social media, it was shared over 4,000 times and his video at the summit was seen by 223,000 people. His endeavour compelled hundreds of people from around the world to contact him to thank him for showing their flag the honour it deserved, and for being a beacon of good at a time when many around the world are living in fear.

His climb even reached the attention of the the prime minister of Palestine, who sent a personal letter of thanks to Douglas along with an Invitation to visit Palestine and meet with him in his office.

You can donate to Douglas's Climb Ben Nevis page to raise money for Medical Aid for Palestinians because Healthcare in Palestine is a humanitarian crisis.

You can watch the chat with Douglas from 1pm.

My ultimate goals in life was to startup a family with a man who permanently wants me always as the only woman in his life, a man that only wants a future with me and his desires to be with and around me to be uncontrollable. A man that will turn a deaf ear to nothing or anyone trying to separate us.
My goals where achieved 2 years ago; I must confess that our marriage was fine until someone somewhere started interfering, pushing and putting negative thoughts in his head out of envy. As days goes by, the atmosphere around us looked fine and automatically did a complete 360, we went from living together, talking, texting and such all-day every-day to barely anything at all. We separated because of the rumor that I couldn’t bear a child. It was a lie told by someone who envied our peaceful marriage.
I sought the help of Dr. Wakina via ( according to reviews I read online and on radio about his work. I found total justice, redemption and restoration through his love spell after months of broken heart. Our enemies where proven wrong the moment my husband comeback to me. I believe there will also go blind after seeing me pregnant.
All hail Dr. Wakina for reinstituting my marriage.
