The African Health Cup is an annual soccer tournament that brings members of the African immigrant and refugee communities together to celebrate culture, and at the same time. It was started in 2010 by Augustus Woyah and several community leaders – Sekani Nkhata, former President of the Zambian Association of New England (ZANE), Scott Mbaka, Head Coach of the Cameroonian local soccer team, and Mohamed Ndjikam, Cameroonian community leader. The AHC was first organized as a six-team tournament – Uganda, Kenya, Ghana, Zambia, Liberia, and Cameroon were represented. The event witnessed remarkable growth in 2012, as the number of participating teams increased to twelve, with six new teams representing Nigeria, Togo, Guinea, Cape Verde, Sierra Leone, and Ivory Coast entering the tournament.
