He, together with an Australian who rescued him, founded an organisation which rescues, houses and cares for today’s young runaways. They have transformed the lives of 1000 children so far. Vi Do is a living hero. He is handsome, charismatic and passionate in all that he does. DRAGON WARRIOR is his story!
