The slogan for one of Guam's social service agencies is trying to say, in Chamorro, HELP FOR THE COMMUNITY.

They use the Chamorro word AYUDA.  This is the verb form.  The noun form is AYUDO.

Ayuda yo'!  Help me! (Verb)

Hu nesesita i ayudu-mo.  I need your help. (Noun)

So AYUDO PARA I KOMUNIDAT would be correct.

***For those of us who pronounce it ayudo (and not ayudu), we do change the pronunciation to ayudu when attached to the suffix (-mo).
