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.

Cath school fined for firing teachers
A Catholic school in Taipei has been fined for not renewing the contracts of two American women teachers because of their Mormon faith, said a report on news.com.au.
- October 21, 2011
The Catholic Dominican International School, located in Taipei, has been fined $20,000 for sacking the two American women, according to the capital's labour bureau.
The school informed the teachers earlier this year that their contracts would not be renewed due to their religion, prompting them to complain to labour authorities, said the bureau.
