The 29-year-old Phoenix Suns star announced that he will donate his NBA seasonal salary to build a hospital in his native Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).
The hospital will be named after his father, who passed away in 2021.
“He was my everything — my friend, my business partner, my mentor and everything,” Biyombo said.
Biyombo said building the hospital in his father’s name will consolidate his legacy whilst helping those in need back home.
“This year, to give my father a gift that will continue to service people, my salary for this season will be going towards the construction of a hospital that will be named after my dad back home to give hope to the hopeless and for those individuals that can not take their family out. The idea is to give them better conditions so that they can somewhat have hope that their loved ones could potentially be able to leave and see another day.

I was born and raised in Hamilton, Ontario and for as long as I can remember, I’ve always been very positive & optimistic. As a young boy, I was a dreamer, a doer and excited for life! I remember growing up, before any big test at school, or soccer game, my mom would always remind me to Do My Best! I’m a wee bit of a perfectionist because of that. And, today, I’m still all of those things, but now a man, driven, dedicated and committed to living a life on my own terms.
