John Pietersen, 58, has been in Manenberg 30 years. He stays with his younger sister, Charmaine, and several nieces and nephews. "I don't have friends in Manenberg," he says. "I worked for the postal service and then was an engineer for 12 years. I'm just waiting for my pension so I can travel." John is a member of one of three families I've been following in Manenberg since 2011. He loses his breath walking from the kitchen to the living room, but won't go to go to the clinic. I've never seen him outside the house. He's always ready with a warm welcome when I arrive.
