Social Work Vacancies in South Africa

The AFM Welfare Council is one of South Africa’s most successful and long-standing welfare organisations with a proud history. It all started in 1938 when the first two orphans were left at the front door of Pastor Gerrie Wessels in Brixton. He took the initiative and the church started a Children’s Home. And the rest, as they say, is history.
