Speaker: George Snyman - Hands at Work in Africa
George Snyman is founder and CEO of Hands at Work in Africa. He lives near White River, South Africa with his wife, Carolyn, and the youngest two of his four children. In 1994 the Snyman family left their sub-urban lifestyle in search for a meaningful life. Carolyn studied nursing while George did theology and development.
During their studies George took time off and walked through six countries in Southern Africa where God showed Him his call… to care for the widows, orphans and dying. George and Carolyn spent years in the field learning how to care for these vulnerable people; and while doing this they discovered God’s call and passion for His Church.
George is passionate in challenging and supporting the African Church to care for the widows, orphans and dying in their communities. He travels to Europe, North America and Australia speaking to Churches to support the African Church in this endeavor.
