Bismack Biyombo is playing ball for a greater cause. He has a history supporting his home country of the Congo. The Phoenix Suns center announced that he will be donating his entire 2021-22 salary to build a hospital in the Congo to pay homage to his late father, according to sources.
The generous contribution will help a lot of people and their families. We Salut Biyomvo’s for his contributions and generous heart.
“What I told my agent was my salary for this year would be going to the construction of a hospital back home to give hope to the hopeless,” he share. “And those individuals who can not take their family members out and want to be able to give them better conditions, so that they can somewhat have hope that their loved ones would be able to live and see another day.”
“The Congo is not a county where you can tell people to stay at home,” Biyombo told USA TODAY Sports. “The population is roughly 80 million and about 70% of the population lives in poverty. They’re depending on daily pay. You can’t say, ‘Listen, I want you to stay at home.’ How is that going to work? That is the biggest fear for me.”
