2009 Pre Obama Inauguration benefit for the not-for-profit Dikembe Mutombo Foundation, at Eyebar, 1716 Eye Street NE, Washington DC.A well-known humanitarian, Mr. Mutombo started the Dikembe Mutombo Foundation to improve living conditions in his native Democratic Republic of Congo. In 1997, Mutombo with the Mutombo Foundation began plans to open a $29 million, 300-bed hospital on the outskirts of his hometown, the Congolese capital of Kinshasa. The project has been on the whole very well received at all social and economic levels in Kinshasa.

On August 14, 2006, Dikembe donated $15 million to the completion of the hospital for its ceremonial opening on September 2, 2006. The hospital was by then named Biamba Marie Mutombo Hospital, named for his late mother, who died of a stroke in 1997. When it opened in February 2007, the $29 million facility became the first modern medical facility to be built in that area in nearly 40 years.
