Dikembe Mutombo Good Deed
I was at the World Bank Headquartres few Months ago for the World’s Innovation Forum and one person I met that I will never forget is Dikembe Mutombo, firstly for his 7.2height that turned me to a dwarf but more importantly for his large heart. Who is Mutombo? He’s a former basket ball player with Kongo origin. He retired and used his fame to do a lot of humanitarian jobs one of which is the over 20Million Dollar worth Hospital in Kongo that is still one of the best hospital in Africa today.
I am sadden daily by how African contribute less to charity works giving unreasonable excuses. A list was recently released of the most liberal nations in Africa and Nigeria was not even mentioned. As much as we all have financial challenges,some people are in worst position than you and I. We need to learn to forget our bills and do some good deeds to help someone daily and not just during Christmas. I asked myself,Where is the NIGERIAN basket ball player that played alongside Dikembe Mutombo now? He’s alive but didn’t use his fame,riches and status to help several courses that exist in Nigeria and Africa at large. From Boko haram victims to Orphans to education to health. Almost all sector in Nigeria need humanitarian intervention. Let us learn to show some compassion all the time and particularly now in the spirit of Christmas.
