NBA Houston Rockets center Dikembe Mutombo was one of the guests of honor at this weeks State of the Union address. Standing at 7’2″, he towered over the first lady. Said President George W. Bush,

“Dikembe became a star in the NBA, and a citizen of the United States, but he never forgot the land of his birth, or the duty to share his blessings with others. He built a brand new hospital in his old hometown. A friend has said of this good-hearted man: ‘Mutombo believes that God has given him this opportunity to do great things.’ And we are proud to call this son of the Congo a citizen of the United States of America.”

In 1997 he created the Dikembe Mutombo Foundation. One of the main projects of the foundation has been the construction of a new hospital. The Biamba Marie Mutombo Hospital, named after his late mother, is the first new medical facility to be constructed in the Congo in 40 years.

Spend some time on his website and you’ll be impressed with the work that Mutombo has done. Below is the video of his moment during the State of the Union.
