Dahabshiil celebrates Golden Jubilee of service with the inauguration of a new UK headquarter

The Dahabshil group of companies is celebrating in style its Golden Jubilee by inaugurating its UK headquarters in London.

Dahabshiil is the ‘rags to riches’ story of an African entrepreneur whose business was interrupted after the Somali civil war. With limited resources and a strong network of contacts, he set about rebuilding the company, which two decades later is now the largest international money transfer business in the Horn of Africa and beyond.

The group’s official tweeter broadcasted its elation which went as follows:-

“Thrilled to announce the grand opening of our new UK headquarters in the heart of London where we celebrated our more than 50 years of serving the diaspora. Thank you to all our customers, agents, and staff for contributing to saving lives and development.

“Similarly, Dahabshil is elated to see one of their customers using a Dahabshil bank card in the UK to ride on buses, buy food, and withdraw cash. It’s great to see satisfied customers using our fully compliant services locally and globally.

“The opening of this office will further expand the company’s services to its clients”. END.

Dahabshiil celebrated 50-plus years in the business. With Abdirashid Duale as CEO, and founder Mr Mohamed Duale as Chairman, Dahabshiil remains a family business. Today, Dahabshiil employs  5,000 people across 126 countries with offices in London, Hargeisa, Mogadishu, and Dubai. It provides services to some of the world’s leading humanitarian organizations, including the United Nations, Oxfam, Save the Children, and Care International.

Dahabshiil is arguably one of the most important multinational businesses in Africa – providing a vital money transfer lifeline to those living in many countries across Africa and beyond.
