Mr. Haroon Karim – World Citizen : The Memon (June 2015)

by on 13 June 2015

“In the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity. The bigger your challenges, the bigger your opportunity for growth”

That sums up the extraordinary life of Mr. Haroon Karim.

We are about to embark on a journey of the unprecedented rise of Mr. Haroon Karim from his humble beginnings in Malawi to the pinnacle of success. From a small, general store in Limbe to a million square feet of prime, real estate in London, Dubai and South Africa.

A journey where he took on every challenge, overcame every hurdle and scaled new heights of success in each venture he undertook …… Only to march onto the next !

Edmund Hillary’s famous quote comes to mind, “While on top of Everest, I looked across the valley towards the great peak Makalu and mentally worked out a route about how it could be climbed. It showed me that even though I was standing on top of the world, it wasn’t the end of everything. I was still looking beyond to other interesting challenges.”

An accomplished hockey player who represented his country, an educationalist who selflessly serves the community, features in the top 100 Asian Power list UK, a magnanimous donor to several charities, was honoured by the Prince of Wales for his exceptional generosity and at the ripe age of 70 is still striving to conquer his next Everest.

Our Chairman of the WMO Board of Trustees, the remarkable Mr. Haroon Karim.

    Please let all memon brothers know we must speak memoni language..so our next generation recognized as proud memon..
    It’s very sad to see majority memon family speak Urdu which I am not against but the ist priorities should be memon … Let’s this word out each and everyone everywhere globally .

    Mr Haroon Karim and his noble family are exceptional people with kindness and generosity which is exemplary
    I first came to know Mr Karim when we played for the same hockey club in London. I also found Mr Karim and his brothers to be committed to prayer and good causes. Their selfless work is also a mark of another gift which they possess- business sense. In this regard I found them to be very hard working and honest people. I ventured into different areas of life and worked at the BBC and could not maintain contact. However, I am so pleased to come across this brochure
