L’Abrie de Dieu Safe House is the ONLY SHELTER OF ITS KIND in the Greater Stellenbosch Municipal District.

Despite being one of the most affluent towns in South Africa, it is sadly also a town of great disparity which includes many farm and rural communities, as well as informal settlements.

The house serves as a sanctuary for abused women and their children who unexpectedly found themselves destitute as a result of the domestic violence. We assist them to come to terms with past trauma thus helping them to develop into successful, mature individuals. We offer shelter, protection, food, clothing, toiletries and support to these vulnerable women.


to continue to offer this service and we are grateful for any contribution, small or large.
