It all started in 2002, when Hussain Sajwani turned a simple brainstorming idea into a profit structure. The idea was to invest in developing properties in Dubai. He launched his development plan like an epic adventure, and it turned out far better than he could have imagine. With the initial success of that first project, Hussain Sajwani saw that he could change underdeveloped land into sprawling luxury. That first 3 story apartment building had interested buyers, before ground even broke on the project. Because of this, Hussain Sajwani realized that he had a knack for land development and founded his own company, DAMAC Properties.
DAMAC Properties main headquarters is in Dubai and the company specializes in high-end luxury commercial and residential buildings. Since the first apartment building in Dubai, DAMAC has expanded to other regions, these include Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and North Africa and Qatar, and Lebanon. The single idea behind DAMAC Properties was to develop luxury real estate in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Hussain Sajwani joined with the business mogul, Donald Trump in 2013 to build two luxury golf courses. The resulting project collaboration opened to the public in February 2017, The Trump International Golf Course Dubai. Now that the conceptual golf course has been completed, Hussain Sajwani has moved to second part of his business deal with a course designed by Tiger Woods called, the Trump World Golf Course; which is scheduled to open in February 2018.
Although, ideally the partnership with Donald Trump has been successful thus far, future development deals will have to wait, since now President Trump has divested himself of the interest in his real estate empire. But, on the business front Hussain has more than property development on his mind. He also participates in donor gift giving, helping several organizations. The highest profile philanthropic gift that he has given to date was one million dollars to “the UAE Compassion Campaign.” The Compassion Campaign is geared towards rendering assistance to refugees in Jordan, Turkey and Lebanon. Additionally, DAMAC has provided philanthropic support for the volunteer humanitarian efforts of the UAE Red Crescent Society.

Victoria Doramus, a marketing trend analyst, is a former drug addict who is helping change the lives of victims of the same in society. She hopes to establish an institution that focuses on helping recovering drug addicts in New York. Victoria says that the center will operate based on the 12 principles that helped her work out the problem in the Burning Tree.
Victoria Doramus checked into the first rehabilitation center, Tucson in Arizona in 2016 and did a program for 45 days and learned a lot more about herself instead of the disease she had. The market strategist did not see any progress, and she checked into the second rehabilitation in Connecticut for 60 days with the hope of recovering and showing her mother that she could handle herself.
In January 2017, she flew to Texas and enrolled for a wellness program at the Burning Tree, a foundation that used the 12 steps of drug recovery and a NO-BS recovery approach to help its patients get better. The center’s everyday routine was scheduled to start at 5:45 in the morning with prayers and meditation. Everyone had an allocated chore that they would later work on ranging from moving the lawn to cleaning the kitchen. Later they would all attend mandatory sessions that were meant to help them accept their situations and try to improve bad habits that were draining them. Then they would end the day with AA meetings that were sessions to connect with God.
Having left the institution in August with nothing, Victoria Doramus got a job to help her raise money and eventually flew to New York. She immediately joined Nonprofit organizations working to change the lives of drug addicts as a volunteer. Victoria says change is a process that begins from within and anyone can change if they set their mind.
