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.

Archbishop wants reproductive health debate

Archbishop Ramon Arguelles of Lipa in Batangas province said Edcel Lagman can contact the office of the Catholic Bishopsâ€™ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) if he accepts the challenge.
Yesterday, Lagman said he wants to have an â€śenlightening sessionâ€ť with representatives from the Catholic Church after Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Tagle expressed willingness to resume discussions.
Archbishop Arguelles said there is nothing wrong with debate but the Church will have to do it by proxy. â€śBishops or priests cannot face Lagman directly so somebody else will have to stand in for them,â€ť he said.
