The Star Golden Hearts Award celebrates Malaysians from all walks of life – individuals or groups – who acted heroically and/or selflessly, building bridges between different communities, and in doing so promotes racial harmony and unity. The inaugural award was presented to 10 individuals and groups on Dec 16, 2015.
On 24 November 2016, we recognised 10 more individuals and groups who have gone out of their way to help others in need, regardless of race, colour or status.
