Hussain Sajwani is one of the most generous individuals in Dubai. While the world has been made aware of this real estate investor through his friendship with President Trump’s family, those closest to him realize how generous he is when others have a need. For example, he recently donated over AED two million to dress needy children around the world. This money given by the largest luxury private real estate developer in the Middle East will be used to cloth more than 50,000 children in the world’s poorest countries. The Damac owner says he is thrilled to do his small part in helping children get a better start.
Central African Republic
Funds may be used to cloth children in the Central African Republic where the average person earns just $656 annually. According to the Human Development Index, this country is the poorest in the world when annual income, life expectancy and education are factored together. Many children in this country are left as orphans because of AIDS and war. Therefore, DAMAC’s donation is highly instrumental in clothing these children who remain extremely vulnerable.
Democratic Republic of Congo
Approximately 98 children out of 1,000 die in the Democratic Republic of Congo. In fact, 20 percent of all children will not reach their fifth birthday while many others will be made to become child soldiers called Kadogos. Most individuals in this country make about $784 annually.
About 54 percent of all children born in Burundi die before their fifth birthday. Almost 50 percent of all people living in the country have no access to drinkable water. Authorities have made it the law that children must go to school until they are 12, however, more than 74 percent of the population has no formal education.
The Hussain Sajwani family says that family bonds are an important aspect of their success. As the owner of more than 8,000 luxury hotel rooms, mansions and apartment units in Dubai, they feel it is there duty to help children around the world get a better start in life.
