Mr. Hussain Sajwani Hands over the Donation to UAE Red Crescent to help Refugees in Need

DAMAC Properties has donated AED one million to the #UAECompassion campaign, to support thousands of refugees in Jordan and Lebanon hit by the ‘Huda’ across the Levant region.

DAMAC has supported the ‘Tarahamu’ campaign with a donation to the UAE Red Crescent, who is delivering aid to the most severely hit areas.

The first planes carrying aid from the UAE have already arrived in Jordan as the snowstorm Huda continued to increase in intensity.

“It is our humanitarian duty to do whatever we can for our brothers facing an unthinkable freezing cold winter away from their homes,” said Mr. Sajwani. “As a UAE-based company, we are keen to support the philanthropic efforts of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, and His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai as they guide us to become a global leader in international support and aid.”

“The #UAECompassion campaign has already seen an overwhelming response from every area of society throughout the UAE, highlighting the kindness in the hearts of everyone,” he added.

DAMAC Properties has consistently supported the campaigns of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, and the efforts of the UAE Red Crescent, including recent donations of AED two million to the ‘clothe a child’ campaign, AED one million to the UAE Suqia (Water Aid) programme and a further AED one million to help build a high-tech care facility for the Dubai Autism Centre.

“We thank DAMAC Properties and Mr. Hussain Sajwani for their continued support towards these humanitarian and charitable campaigns, which deliver assistance to those most in need,” said, Mohamed Abdullah Al Haj Al Zarouni, General Manager of Dubai Branch, UAE Red Crescent. “We need as many companies and individuals to come forward to join this campaign as possible – to help the tens of thousands of people who are homeless and freezing.”
