FALA winner Lebsey Petmia Lebaga pushes for healthcare
The Future Africa Leaders’ Foundation is an arm of Pastor Chris Oyakhilome’s Christ Embassy. The organization rewards young African leaders every year on December 31st at the Future Africa Leaders’ Awards.
The 2022 Star Prize Winner of the award show was Lebsey Petmia Lebaga from Cameroon.
She won the title because of her work in the field of healthcare, among other things.
In two years, she trained 3,000 people in Cameroon to become community health service workers.
“In Cameroon, there is no trained community health advocate. The community health workers are almost insignificant. Within my powers, in the next two years, we should have at least 3,000 persons. That will cause a tremendous change and shift and there would be a decrease in some communicable diseases,” Lebsey Petmia Lebaga stated.
She is actively working and pushing for a primary healthcare system in Cameroon.

“To eradicate poverty and foster economic growth, a food and resource material distribution was carried out in Malawi where over 500 orphanage children were provided with foodstuffs, hygiene kits, relief items and educational materials,” Pastor Ifeoma Chiemeka stated at the Future Africa Leaders’ Awards on Saturday, December 31st, 2022.
