JOHANNESBURG, South Africa, Feb. 4 (UPI) -- U.S. actress Kristin Davis is working with Oxfam to raise awareness of and support for community efforts addressing the HIV and AIDS epidemic in South Africa.
Davis, an Oxfam global ambassador, was in Johannesburg during the weekend.
Oxfam said it was Davis' second trip to South Africa.
"I have been amazed by the incredible strength and energy of South Africa's community groups in tackling the AIDS epidemic in this country," Davis said in a statement. "People like Mama Grace, who runs a soup kitchen in Soweto for orphans and other vulnerable children, are an incredible tower of strength in South Africa's uphill response to AIDS. These unsung heroes are pulling together what little food and money they have to provide care to those living with HIV. Oxfam helps support them in this effort. These people are inspirational, but can't win the battle on their own. These communities need nurses and doctors. These wonderful people are holding up their communities and need our support."
The actress is best-known for her role in the U.S. television comedy "Sex and the City."
