It is used for emphasis. Usually it is used when there is a possibility that something will not be available or has not been done. "I don't have a full apartment, but I DO have a room." "I don't swim, but I DO play tennis."

The "do" is used to emphasize what is stated. -I'm not sure you love me. -I do love you!

Funnily enough, your question should be written ''Why DO we use 'do' here?'' Question forms, remember!
