Phoenix Suns big man Bismack Biyombo, who last month signed a one-year, $2.9 million deal to remain with the team, has been providing a travelogue of sorts on his Twitter account, showing his efforts to assist people in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, his home country.
Bismack met with Pope Francis at the Vatican hotel on June 21 to brief him on the Biyombo Foundation’s humanitarian efforts in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Several months after the unexpected death of his father, Francois, Bismack Biyombo joined the Phoenix Suns with two goals in mind: Use his salary to help build a hospital in his dad’s honor in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and win an NBA championship.
On March 11, 2022, Bismack announced he will be donating his entire 2021-2022 salary towards building a hospital in his homeland of the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
