Syria has been experiencing one of the most complex conflicts that the world has ever seen. The civil war of the country which began during the Arab Spring in 2011 as a peaceful uprising against the nation’s president Bashar al-Asad, escalated in the past eight years, shattering the lives of local residents, ravaging cities, its heritage, architecture, straining international politics and spurring diplomatic initiatives that are repeatedly questioned as the world comes across the terror of the ongoing warfare.

Amid the hostility and antagonism, some noble men have surfaced with their charitable efforts to bring Syria back to track. Mohammad Makhlouf is one such name who aims to restore peace and harmony to his country through his various productive deeds. Contrary to be known for his lavish lifestyle, Makhlouf is preparing to launch Syria’s biggest construction company, MRM Holding by 2022. It is the only construction firm in Syria that has managed to garner a huge magnetism of investments in the re-launch period.

The 22-year-old Damascus native, aims to provide a better and peaceful lifestyle to his fellow Syrians even amid chaos and turbulence. Makhlouf who graduated with his BBA degree from American University, Dubai, is known for his business acumen and entrepreneurial skills. Being aware of the current scenario of Syria, Makhouf believes that the handful affluent people of the country should take the initiative to re-build the nation.

“My intentions are what suits the best interest of the people of Syria. Better investments will give me better opportunities to reach out to more people and assist them,” said Makhlouf, who co-owns Milk Man Dairy Production, one of the leading dairies in Syria.

With his construction company, Makhlouf eyes to provide some relief to his fellow countrymen. He has constructed a sports stadium at Latakia free of cost for children in Syria, so that they are not deprived of their childhood. The young entrepreneur feels that it is his job to make the country a better place for living for those who have seen the worst till date.

Makhlouf’s MRM Holding wants to build its reputation on quality, budget services and on-time delivery. The company believes that there is more to building integrity than just mere steel and concrete. “Stressing on clients’ core vision, values and integrity is what the company believes in”, said Makhlouf. MRM Holding will cover its services in building office buildings, community centres, hospital facilities, warehouses and residential complexes.

It’s expert team, dependability and operational excellence will make MRM Holding one of the biggest and major construction companies in Syria that can create architectural wonders out of the dusts and ashes.

The critics are galore, but Makhlouf’s work has already been awarded by honours like Al-Amal Award 2017 and the Most Charitable Man Award of 2018. The young entrepreneur has saved hundreds of Syrians from many debacles such as fire and invasion among others. Undoubtedly, Syria needs more Mohammad Makhloufs’ who pledge to raise the country out of its ravages.
