Love Yourself ANGLO: With your help, a new community center will rise





One out of seven countries in the world with a rising number of new HIV infections, the Philippines is in dire need of help. We in Love Yourself, a community-driven group, are determined to address this concern head-on. Everyone in Love Yourself is a volunteer. We do this because we care. 





A COMMUNITY IN NEED.
In partnership with RITM (Research Institute for Tropical Medicine), LoveYourself has been able to reach thousands of MSMs (men who have sex with men) via the LoveYourself Hub. Located in Malate Manila, one of the favorite hangouts of MSMs in the metro, the LoveYourself Hub is an RITM satellite clinic and a LoveYourself community center. Riding off this successful partnership, LoveYourself hopes to ramp up its efforts and position itself to better handle the exponential increase in clients

Enter LoveYourself ANGLOLocated at the heart of Metro Manila, and near the up and coming gay vortex of Ortigas and Mandaluyong, LoveYourself ANGLO will be a community center that will be providing a much needed safe and affirming place for the MSM community. It will be a counseling and education space, an HIV clinic and a space to meet and converge. It will be a community center where one can be free of the stigma of one’s sexuality and HIV status


LOVEYOURSELF ANGLO

LoveYourself ANGLO will feature six (6) counseling rooms, a lab, a doctor’s room and a multi-purpose hall. Its innovative modular design will allow for great functionality to adapt to the needs of the community. With your help we can achieve this long overdue dream.

HOW CAN I HELP?
Our target is to raise at least 35,000 USD to help renovate the space. Every little bit counts and no donation is too small.
