Remembering Africa from afar

Dikembe Mutumbo is retiring from the NBA after a long illustrious career.  His signature move, the finger-wagging, will be missed.  Mutumbo is to be commended not for his basketball playing however, but because he has remembered Africa:

Mutombo’s most personal project is the Biamba Marie Mutombo Hospital, which opened in December 2007, in his native Democratic Republic of Congo. Mutombo donated $19 million and set up a foundation to raise money for the hospital, named after his late mother.

May God be with you in your retirement, Mr. Mutumbo!
