The world over has many rich people. Only a few of these people will be willing to continuously contribute to charitable organizations without getting something in return. One such a person is DAMAC Properties Chief Executive Officer Hussain Sajwani, who is now one of the notable philanthropists in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
In 1976, Hussain Sajwani founded DAMAC Properties. This Dubai-based engineering, building and construction and the architectural company has grown to become one of the reputable real estate agencies in the Middle East. It is through DAMAC Properties that Hussain Sajwani, the DAMAC Owner, has known many prominent people, who include U.S President Donald Trump, whom he knew long before Trump decided to contest for U.S presidency. Hussain is also a close friend to UAE’s His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
Sajwani Among The Invitees
Shortly after the completion of the 2016 U.S Presidential Election that saw Trump win, the Republican invited his close friends for a private dinner party. The party was attended by 800 VVIPs. Among them was Hussain Sajwani and his family. When the president-elect introduced some of the dignitaries, he made a meticulous statement about the Sajwanis. Trump called the Sajwanis ‘the most beautiful family’ from Dubai. This was an indication of a close bond.
When he stood to acknowledge the invitation, Hussain Sajwani of the DAMAC Properties said that never in his life has he ever been happy, as he was that evening. He went further to tell the close to 1,000 VVIPs that both families have enjoyed close ties for a long time. “We have been invited by Mr. Trump to his home in Florida several times before and they have visited us in Dubai on many occasions but never have I ever been happy like today. It is a happy moment to celebrate with you my friend together with my family,” the DAMAC founder said. Hussain went further to mention how his wife and Ivanka exchange emails on a daily basis, enjoying what he called ‘their most adorable conversations’ on a regular basis.
Builds Trump International Course
As the U.S was on with its presidential campaigns, Hussain and his company, DAMAC Properties was busy constructing a magnificent structure. He later named the building Trump International Course Dubai, in honor of his friend Donald. The DAMAC founder is a man known to give alms. He does not keep all his wealth to himself. Recently, when His Highness Sheikh Mohammed asked well-wisher to support his Ramadan Initiative, a program to clothe and feed 1 million poor children, Hussain contributed 2 million AED.
