During the award presentation, Regina Robinson, Convener of GAMA said the award was to celebrate and reward distinguished men and women who are selfless and have positively impacted others.

His words:

“The award celebrates individuals and bodies who have, over the years, supported life-changing causes, especially in the areas of health and, most prominently, the less privileged, physically challenged and children with special needs as well as the teeming youth population.

“GAMA remains a platform for showcasing the brighter side of a perceived unattractive world.

“The occasion also provides us the opportunity to showcase the potential of our magazine and what we stand for.”
