A Closer Look at Shahzada Dawood's Philanthropic Endeavors

Today morning, the world mourned the loss of Shahzada Dawood, an extraordinary Pakistani individual who made significant contributions to both business and his field, leaving a sad but strong impact on our society. In a heartbreaking incident, Shahzada Dawood and his 19-year-old son, Suleman, lost their lives in the Atlantic Ocean along with three other adventurers. The group included British businessman and explorer Hamish Harding, French deep-sea explorer and Titanic expert Paul-Henri Nargeolet, and Stockton Rush, CEO of OceanGate, who owned the submersible they were traveling in.

Shahzada Dawood had a deep fascination with the legendary ocean liner, the Titanic, and on Father’s Day this year, he embarked on a once-in-a-lifetime expedition with his son to explore the wreckage in the Atlantic’s icy depths. Tragically, contact was lost with the submersible, named RMS Titan, almost an hour after its dive. Despite search and rescue efforts, it was revealed after a day that the submersible had imploded due to a catastrophic loss of the pressure chamber, leading to the loss of all those on board.

In a heartfelt statement, Dawood’s family even expressed their profound grief and gratitude to the rescuers involved in the operation. They also highlighted the unfathomable loss they have had to go through.

Shahzada Dawood enjoyed a highly successful business career, not to mention at Engro Corporation, where he served as a director for two decades, including the last two years as vice chairman. Born in Rawalpindi in 1975, he was widely respected for his business expertise and had the privilege of speaking at esteemed forums such as the World Economic Forum and the United Nations.

However, it is Dawood’s philanthropic endeavors that will leave a lasting legacy. He was passionately committed to making a positive difference in the lives of countless individuals, even though he may never have met them personally. Dawood’s dedication to corporate social responsibility was highly regarded, and he firmly believed that Engro Corporation should lead the way in addressing the most pressing issues faced by the nation.


Hailing from a family known for their commitment to social welfare, Dawood inherited a deep-seated desire to create meaningful change. Guided by his upbringing and personal values, he embarked on an extraordinary philanthropic journey that reshaped social development not only in Pakistan but also beyond its borders.

As we, unfortunately, bid farewell to Shahzada Dawood, we remember him as a remarkable Pakistani whose legacy will continue to inspire generations to come. His tragic end has left a void in our hearts, but his contributions to society will forever be cherished.
