Hussain Sajwani, The DAMAC Properties Founder Makes Friends, Expands Business, Clothes The Poor

When he started DAMAC Properties in 1976 and based the company in Dubai, Hussain Sajwani did not fathom that what he is seeing currently would come. Back then, as a young industrious man, Hussain Sajwani set foot to test the waters of real estate investment. It has since turned out to be the biggest real estate, engineering, architecture, and building and construction company in the Middle East. From humble beginnings in the early 80s, DAMAC Properties has grown to become the largest building and construction firm in UAE having completed over 22,700 nicely-furnished units.

Most of the units DAMAC Properties under the oversight of Hussain Sajwani deals with are commercial and residential apartments that are decent and spacious. What is more, these units are affordable.

Thanks to his company, DAMAC Properties, the Chief Executive Officer Hussain Sajwani has been able to meet with many prominent personalities. To date, they are his close friends. These prominent people include the United Arab Emirates His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. This tells why Hussain Sajwani did not hold off his hand when the king asked well-wishers to support his Ramadan initiative. This charitable program was aimed at supporting 1 million needy children throughout the UAE. Hussain Sajwani, the DAMAC Properties CEO gave a personal donation of 2 million AED.

When giving the donation, as per the Arabian Business, Hussain said that he felt pity for the children who he saw walking naked on the streets each day while a few affluent people who own wealth live in ‘unreachable castles’. Hussain Sajwani’s friendship is not in his country alone or extends to a few countries in the region. For a long time, he has maintained close ties with Donald Trump. Their friendship started long before Trump became president. This was made manifest shortly after Donald Trump was named U.S President-elect. Mr. Trump invited 800 close friends who included Hussain and his family. The DAMAC properties founder was elated to be among the few VVIPs that his friend extended an invitation to.

As the U.S was busy campaigning, Hussain Sajwani and his DAMAC Properties were busy completing a building in Dubai. Later, upon completion, Hussain named the building Trump International Course Dubai. He said he did this to show appreciation for a long-term healthy relationship the two families have enjoyed for a long time. Hussain’s children posted several photos showing how they had special moments with the Trumps at a private dinner party in 2016. The party was held at Mar-a-Lago.
