NBA Legend Dikembe Mutombo is the chairman and president of the DMF, INC which is dedicated to improving the health, education and quality of life for the people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. With focus specific projects annually, DMF strives to create primary health sustainability.
Nurses with Purpose had the opportunity to attend the annual delegation with Mr. Mutombo and his team of experts. As the first nursing organization to be in attendance, we identified some areas in which NWP would be able to facilitate nursing support throughout the hospital with joint forces with DMF.
Every year DMF's outreach focuses on a variety of services including, orthopedic surgery, breast cancer awareness and screening, and just recently cataract surgery.
