About Starlight Safe House

We see so many terrible things on television news programs and films that most of us become deadened to feeling the suffering and pain of our fellow children. We detach ourselves from what we see in order to protect ourselves from suffering the emotional pain we would feel. Mostly resulting in us eventually shutting down that part of us that can feel entirely. We lose the ability to unconditionally love and care for others thus resulting on us eventually shutting down from rendering a helping hand.

Starlight Safehouse, Founded by Charity King in 2020. A young Black woman with a heart for the less fortunate, who saw the plight of orphans in the area and Cape Town as a whole and decided to do something about it by going out of her way to do her best to fend for those in need from her own pocket and those of volunteers, while awaiting sponsorship or donors for further assistance.

Starlight is about opening our hearts and minds on how best to care, love and grow our abandoned vulnerable babies, toddlers, teens, and young adults, ensuring we provide relief from that suffering wherever possible.

Giving Back to the Community

Established in 2020, The Soup Kitchen is a resource for the homeless, elderly, lonely and vulnerable in Witsand Atlantis and Fisantkraal Durbanville.
As part of our Community initiatives Starlight runs a weekend kitchen, where all homeless, orphaned and disadvantaged indivisuals can come and have a free plate of food.
Every weekend be it on Saturday or Sunday we set up in the community and we dish out freshly cooked food to the community members.
We support the less fortunate with no discrimination of race, gender or culture.
We would love for this community initiative to grow to be an everyday reality for Starlight to give back each day and we hope with more support from sponsors and volunteers this will soon come to a beautiful reality.
