Dikembe Mutombo
Retired NBA star, Dikembe Mutombo, has changed the life of a Congolese boy with a face tumour by flying him all the way from Congo to the United States for a surgery.

The 8-year-old boy, Matadi, who has a tumour growing on the left side of his face, met the basketball legend at the Los Angeles International Airport.

Mutombo said he met Matadi earlier this year at a hospital he built in Congo – the Biamba Marie Mutombo Hospital.
