A lot has been going on in his life since he started DAMAC Properties in 1976. In spite of the economic hardships that have continued to rock the world, Hussain Sajwani has remained focused over the years. Perhaps, this tells why DAMAC Properties continues to take the lead of many multinational companies that record steady progress in the world today. A recent study into the number of structures DAMAC Properties has constructed to date indicates that the company under its CEO Hussain Sajwani has been able to build over 22,700 structures across the United Arab Emirates. These are not just simple structures but decent modern residential homes and commercial apartments. Although DAMAC Properties is headquartered in Dubai, the company has offices and workers spread across major cities in the Middle East. Recently, the company has opened offices in foreign lands in a bid to expand their services.
Hangs Out With The Elite
With this kind of upbringing and zeal for his company, it is easy to imagine the kinds of friends Hussain Sajwani brushes shoulders with. He is a close personal friend to His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. This tells you why Hussain promptly responded to the King’s invitation for his Ramadan initiative that was aimed at buying clothing for more than 1 million poor children throughout the UAE. Moved by the pity of the tens of thousands of children who walk naked on the streets, Hussain Sajwani donated 2 million AED to the kitty. Hussain’s money is to help buy clothes to 50,000 needy children.
When presenting his 2 million AED donation, Hussain Sajwani said, “The young are the future of our society. They are what the world has. It is an important thing for me to ensure that I give them the little I can. As a society, we must remain committed to helping these young ones have the best start in their lives. DAMAC Properties may not be able to achieve much but the little we can is a good gesture.”
During the 2016 New Year’s Eve, Hussain (@hussainsajwani) showed the world how close his family is to that of U.S President Donald Trump. Then, he said, “My family and Trump’s have visited each other several times before. We have been to Florida and they have visited us in Dubai severally.”
