Bismack Biyombo Will Donate His NBA Salary

 The Phoenix Suns center Bismack Biyombo is planning to donate his entire 2021-2022 NBA salary to a great cause. He plans to donate the money to build a hospital in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. 

Biyombo's father, Francois Biyombo died of a COVID-19 related illness in August 2021. The hospital that will be built in the Democratic Republic of the Congo will be in his father's name sake. 

"There’s a joy for me to do something for him, to gift him something that will hopefully last generations and save lives, He dedicated his whole life servicing people. My motivation and desire were to put something in place that would continue servicing people under his name. The goal is not to live forever, but the goal is to do something that will hopefully live forever" - Bismack Biyombo
