Ilunga’s commitment to children and youth has been such that since 2013 he has helped various Foster homes through the Junior Makabu Foundation and has met with senior leaders in search of support.

His most recent meeting was with Madam Suzzana Taklec President of the “Union National in RDC for the Humanitary Action”, a woman who has dedicated her life to creating of various programs that focus on food security and livelihoods to combat poverty, exclusion, intolerance and discrimination.
During this meeting, the champion presented Madam Suzzana with the Green and Gold Belt, as well as a t-shirt Suzzana Taklec # 1; However, the most important aspect of this meeting was the practical cooperation agreements to work hand in hand in favour of the less fortunate through the Junior Makabu Foundation and the WBC Cares program.
