Dr. Lu is the founder and president of Golden Courage International (GCI). He has been trained as a Traditional Chinese Medical doctor and received his M.D. from the China Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Beijing, China. He earned his doctoral degree from University of Nebraska-Lincoln studying the impact of AIDS in China. Golden Courage International is an outgrowth of this work. His name, "Dr. Luke", was given to him by the people receiving his humanitarian assistance in central China. This name means "the healer who brings hope."

We start the day with 75 minutes of Tai Chi in the chill morning air led by the accomplished Dr. Lu Sr., who patiently instructs us on the proper forms and movements under the towering mountain peaks in a spectacular and inspiring setting. After a healthy and more than ample breakfast of locally grown vegetables, fruits, and freshly made tofu and steamed buns, we depart for the Yan Qing Elementary School. We are warmly welcomed by Principal Lee, the teachers and the 240 children in his care with a special ceremony thanking Golden Courage for our help and support. Brightly colored banners honoring Golden Courage International decorate the meeting room where children from the age of 8 to 14 sit very quietly listening to the greetings from the local officials who acknowledge the important contribution Golden Courage is making to the education and well-being of these special children.
With an audience of eager and appreciative parents, students, teachers, community officials, political leaders, and our highly anticipated delegation, Dr. Yun Lu encourages each and every child to do their very best so they can be successful and assist other children to succeed as well, reinforcing the strong Golden Courage message of helping others every step of the path.

As an American deeply interested in Golden Courage International and its work on behalf of children in China, I had the privilege and opportunity of traveling to China with Dr. Yun Lu, President of Golden Courage, his wife Katarina, and my husband, Oran, in June of 2006. This was the first trip back to China in 11 years for Dr. Lu and the first experience in China for the rest of us.

...
We are welcomed with huge bouquets of colorful flowers by Dr. Pang, Dr. Yun Lu's mother and recently retired Chief of Medicine at Sinyuan Medical Center; Dr. Lu's father, Dr. X.C. Lu, former Chairman of Philosophy at Beijing University; Dr. Chow, one of Golden Courage International's devoted volunteers; and Yue Xin, the Beijing Golden Courage office manager.
...
It is the place on the embankment of the river where Dr. Lu's grandmother, Reverend Pang, brought the newborn baby Yun to live after his mother and father were taken away by the Red Guards during the Cultural Revolution of Mao Zedong.
...
Dr. Lu's father was sent to prison for 11 years, and his mother was exiled to the remote countryside of China. Her life was spared because, as a physician, she could be useful to Mao's people. Reverend Pang was joined by a Buddhist monk, and the two of them spent the next decade nurturing the young Yun and trying to protect him from the physical abuse they all unfortunately suffered.
...
Dr. Lu is very excited to relate to us how creatively his ailing grandmother managed to feed and clothe him, and use the pine tree on the embankment of the river as their home, their source of shelter and protection. During the years young Yun begged for food, he went hungry many nights and watched other children die of hunger. He even helped to dig the graves for their tiny bodies.
It became evident to me, as I heard more about Dr. Lu's early experiences, that his motivation to help the multitude of children orphaned by AIDS and living destitute on the streets, came from his own experience as a child living on the streets of Beijing, begging for the only food he ate, and protected by a pine tree from the elements that rained down on him. Dr. Lu knows, first-hand, the pain of a hungry child, a sick child, a ridiculed child, and he has created Golden Courage International to prevent as many children as he can from experiencing the horror of this situation.
