Mahzooz helps three family men secure their children’s future

16 September 2021, Dubai, UAE: Three UAE residents hailing from The Philippines, the United Kingdom, and Pakistan shared the AED 1,000,000 second prize in the 42nd weekly live Mahzooz draw. The lucky winners matched five out of the six winning numbers and took home AED 333,333 each.

Nestor, 42, from The Philippines, described his win as the dream-come-true moment in his life.

“I couldn’t believe myself when I saw the winning numbers on the screen. It took me some time to come to my senses and my joy knew no bounds. My 11-year-old son started dancing after seeing me and my wife jumping in the air in happiness. I hugged my son and told him: your future has been secured and I have an unprecedented surprise for you,” said Nestor who works as a Senior Engineer in Dubai.

Nestor plans to invest the winnings in his son's education.

“I was struggling to meet the educational expenses of my son with my current salary. However, he can have a brighter and better future with this prize money,” he added.

For Irfan, 35, from Pakistan, this win will change many things in his life for the better.

"I feel blessed and overwhelmed with joy. I was shocked to see my 3-year-old and 6-month-old children cheering with me and my wife when we got the amazing news from Mahzooz. Although they are too young to understand what it means to win AED 333,333, I think they sensed that something great has happened”.

Irfan, who works as a P.R.O in Dubai will invest his winnings to secure the future of his family.

"It's a great blessing that will help me, and my family to have a better life. Now I’m more confident and optimistic about our future,” said Irfan.

Moamen, 39, from the United Kingdom received an email from Mahzooz while he was dropping his children at school.

“My children were astonished to see me suddenly jumping and laughing out loud. They asked what’s going on dad? I said: you will get a wonderful gift soon. You can ask for anything and I will make it happen. Soon, all our dreams will become a reality. Thanks, God, for this great blessing, and thanks to Mahzooz for making our lives better. With this money, I will secure our future, and I will definitely share some of my winnings with the needy,” said Moamen, who works as an operations manager in Dubai.

Moamen concluded with an inspiring message for all the Mahzooz participants: “The more patience you have, the better rewards you get.”
