Published on 28 Sep 2019 3:57:23 PM

Yunizam Yusop was moved by a sense of compassion for those without sufficient funds to hire funeral vans for their deceased loved ones.

With the help of his friend and business partner Hasli Halida, Yunizam, also fondly known as Abam Botak, started a free funeral van service for those in need in Sandakan.

For his efforts, Yunizam is recognised as one of the 10 winners of Star Golden Hearts Award 2019, an annual award that celebrates everyday Malaysian unsung heroes.
