In 2016, the name Hussain Sajwani became internationally known after the partnership between the Dubai based luxury real estate developer and U.S. President Donald Trump were highlighted by the incoming President at his annual New Year’s Eve party. The Hussain Sajwani family flew to the trump estate in Florida as guests of the Republican President after the two families grew close as they struck out on a series of luxury real estate developments, including the construction of golf courses across the Middle East carrying the Trump brand name; the founder of the DAMAC real estate brand explained he had plans for a further $2 billion in deals he hoped to one day complete with the Trump organization.
Despite the success he has achieved over the course of a career taking Hussain Sajwani from the food service industry to the top of the real estate industry in one of the world’s leading markets, the DAMAC owner has never forgotten his roots and makes it his annual goal to help with charitable projects. The annual period of charitable giving around the Holy month of Ramadan has always been important to Hussain Sajwani as he makes it his personal aim to help boost the funds donated to the charitable projects developed by members of the Royal Family of the United Arab Emirates.
In 2013, Hussain Sajwani made one of his largest individual donations to a project developed by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum designed to aid the needy children of Dubai and the United Arab Emirates in living a better life. Mr. Sajwani donated more than $500,000 to the cause also backed by the President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates that used the donated funds to provide new clothing and fuel for low-income families with children. The funds donated by Hussain Sajwani were passed on to the Red CRescent organization dedicated to assisting those in need across the Middle East.
