Dubai-based businessman offers free apartment for displaced residents


CEO and co-founder of rental management company Kennedy Towers Simon Kennedy has been offering free apartment stay to residents who have been laid off and currently looking for job amid Covid-19 situation.

In a LinkedIn post, Kennedy is offering one of his company’s studio apartments free for two months.

“All I ask in return is to use those two months to improve your situation,” he said in the video.

Those who needed shelter are asked to send short video of LinkedIn and Instagram explaining how they will use those two months to change their life around.

On June 7, Kennedy finally opened one of his apartments to a young couple from South Africa who both have lost their full-time jobs due to Covid-19 pandemic.

Kennedy did not only stop from helping the couple, he has also reached out to other people who have sent videos to him by paying their rent for the same period.
