THE National’s fundraiser with Medical Aid for Palestinians has now raised more than £40,000.

We raised our target to £50,000 following a surge in donations on Saturday and have now passed the £40,000 mark. 

You can donate to the fundraiser by clicking on the banner below.

We will also be releasing exclusive content throughout the week until next Saturday to highlight the dire humanitarian situation and what we can do to help.

It comes after hundreds of pro-Palestine supporters marched in Edinburgh and Glasgow calling for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.

The Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign organised the rallies, with more than 31,000 Palestinians now killed since the Hamas attacks on southern Israel on October 7.

Saturday’s protests fall after International Women’s Day, with organisers calling on demonstrators to “stand in solidarity with Palestinian women”.

Our campaign has been backed by every senior Scottish political leader, including First Minister Humza Yousaf, Douglas Ross, Anas Sarwar, Patrick Harvie and Lorna Slater, Alex Cole-Hamilton and Alex Salmond.

Medical Aid for Palestinians has been working in Palestine for 40 years, and are working tirelessly under the most tiring circumstances to ensure people get the healthcare they need and deserve.

This is often at the risk of death. Since October 7 2023, at least 340 healthcare workers have been killed while more than 160 others have been detained, according to Gaza’s Ministry of Health.

The least their bravery deserves is the medication and equipment they need to do their job.
