Salute to Greatness Awards Gala

Every year, The King Center in Atlanta leads the nation-wide observance of the national holiday commemorating the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. One of the marquee events of The King Center’s week-long holiday experience is the annual “Salute to Greatness Awards Gala.” The Salute to Greatness Award is one of The King Center’s highest honors and is given to individuals and progressive organizations in recognition of outstanding efforts toward building the beloved community, to which Dr. King dedicated his life.

On Saturday, January 19, 2019, Mr. Dikembe Mutombo will receive the 2019 Yolanda Denise King Higher Ground Award during the gala. This event will take place at the Hyatt Regency hotel in Atlanta.

On November 15, 2018 Dikembe Mutombo spoke at the annual TEDMED conference in Palm Springs, CA. TEDMED is the independent health and medicine edition of the world-famous TED conference. This annual event brings the world together to focus on what’s new and important in health and medicine. They forge partnerships with industry leaders, medical research institutions, think tanks, government agencies and foundations, to ensure that cutting-edge biomedical thinking, innovation in healthcare and large scale global public health opportunities are shared across disciplines and made accessible to the public at large. Billed as the Global Health All-Star, Dikembe was interviewed live by Isha Sesay (former anchor and correspondent for CNN International).

JERUSALEM (AP) — Basketball Hall of Famer Dikembe Mutombo, a fearsome 7-foot-2 center in his playing days, said Tuesday he was moved to tears at the sight of Jerusalem‘s ancient walls.

Mutombo, who hails from a devout Christian community in Congo, described his first visit to the holy city as an emotional experience. He said he thought about his parents, who died before they could see the place they had spent their lives reading about in the Bible.

“My parents might be gone, but they instilled in me the dream of coming here, and I’ve made it,” he said. “I can’t believe I’m really here.”

Our Commitment

The Dikembe Mutombo Foundation is dedicated to improving the health, education and quality of life for the people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. We are committed to providing high quality health care to people regardless of their economic conditions.
