At the opening ceremony of the Open Day, the Executive Director of Safety Godown Company Limited, Mr. Wayne Lu said, "Many people have lost their jobs during the pandemic.  During this difficult time, the Lu's Foundation would like to support Oi Kwan's employment programs for the underprivileged."  Mr. Lu stated that the reason for choosing rope-skipping as the main theme was because it could be done in very limited space.  He would like to motivate those affected by the epidemic with the indomitable spirit of athletes. Apart from this, he hoped that The LU+ Business Centre can be a platform connecting charities, business associations and private companies and create synergy and generate positive impact to the society.


Mr. Raymond Chiu, the Chief Executive Officer of Baptist Oi Kwan Social Service, appreciated Lu's Foundation and LU Plaza for supporting community services in the past year. He said, "At the start of the Covid-19 outbreak, the LU's Foundation donated reusable anti-bacterial face masks, subsidized free canteen, and purchased equipment to support grass-roots students' online learning. Furthermore, the LU Plaza also offers preferential rent to Ratoon Beaute nail parlor and the Vocational Training and Employment Support Service Center with the aim to assist unemployed individuals to start a career."
