In the Dunoon community near Chevron's Cape Town refinery, more than 50 percent of residents have HIV/AIDS. Chevron and our local partners established the Dunoon Community Home-Based Care Center to meet the needs of home-bound AIDS patients. Run by women from the community, the center provides meals and support services to more than 150 AIDS patients each week. The partnership offers project management training to all who work there, enabling the center to be run by the community for the community.
