The International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission reports getting word from Steve La Guerre, the director of SEROvie, the AIDS organization in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Of those at SEROvie at the time of the quake, 14 people were killed, two survived.

La Guerre wrote:

We were having our usual support group meeting on a quiet Tuesday afternoon when the worst happened. The sound is unforgettable. I can’t even describe the horror as the ceiling and the wall of the conference room started to fall and the chaos started. Fourteen young men were lost forever in the earthquake. Paul Emile, the leader of the group, and Stacy were the only survivors.

It is now more than ever that SEROvie and ACCV (Civic Action Against HIV) are needed to provide the quality services we have been providing to our beneficiaries: food, clothes, and any type of help is needed for our members. Any help will do.

Light a candle for these souls and for Haiti. Lord help us.

The International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission is directing 100% of donations made on their site to help SEROvie and other groups helping the LGBT community. Donations can be made here.
