About The Prize


Dr Lui Che-woo firmly believes that he can facilitate the building of a better world by properly recognising those people or organisations, who have made remarkable contributions to the welfare of mankind, and encouraging them to persevere with their efforts in the same direction.

Despite being born into an affluent family, Dr Lui experienced in his early life many of the hardships that people around the globe now face: illness, poverty, conflict, famine and despair. He worked extremely hard to build up a successful business conglomerate. He is resolute in his conviction that mankind can overcome many adversities through selfless dedication and unceasing efforts before moving into the realms of respect and tolerance, mutual understanding and support, harmony and prosperity.

Dr Lui has long been an advocate of “returning to the society what is owed”. He is also a staunch supporter of traditional values that promote benevolence and peace. These tenets and his deep compassion for humanity have inspired him to establish the LUI Che Woo Prize to extol those individuals or organisations who have selflessly dedicated themselves to the nurturing and enrichment of world civilisation.
