Happy day after Coming Out Day Tuesday!

succor (British succour) [SUHK-er]

1. help; relief; aid; assistance

2. a person or thing that gives help, relief, aid, etc.

transitive verb
3. to help or relieve


If only succor to countries in need were better regulated and organized by our governments, the possibility of pulling those ailing nations out of poverty and civil unrest would be so much greater.
