UCAN needs your support
You are why we do what we do - report, describe, comment, review. It is to bring to your eyes just what life is like for believers across Asia that we publish UCAN.
But as you know, the effort needs to be sustained if it is to have continuing effect.
UCAN publishes some 150 stories a week in four languages across six websites. We are grateful to benefactors in Europe and the US who support us. But those countries and the Church there are under increasing financial strain and their generosity no longer covers our costs.
We need financial help from our readers to sustain our efforts. Our reporters, editors, video producers and photographers all have families and we need to support them. They do excellent jobs, but they can't do their jobs for nothing.
Will you help us to sustain UCAN? Please click here to help.
Thanks in anticipation.

Former Miss Universe and Bollywood actress Sushmita Sen has been conferred with the Mother Teresa Memorial International Award for Social Justice.
The 37-year-old model-actress, who has two adopted daughters, shared the news through Twitter after receiving the honor.
"Beautiful people... 'The Mother Teresa International Award' I received last night. Precious," Sen posted along with a photo.
"What an overwhelming feeling to receive an award named after 'Mother' and with past recipients like his holiness Dalai Lama and Malala Yousafzai," she tweeted.
During the Miss Universe pageant of 1994, Sen had won appreciation by expressing admiration for Mother Teresa.
Currently in its sixth edition, the award ceremony is an initiative that highlights various endeavours taken up by individuals and NGO's to promote peace and social justice.
