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.

Church launches audio Bible for phones and tablets

"We know that not everyone is interested in reading. Thatâ€™s why we are promoting this audio Bible," said Auxiliary Bishop Pablo David of San Fernando, head of the Episcopal Commission on Biblical Apostolate.
He said the move is part of the Church's "Faith Comes from Hearing Campaign."
A recent survey by the National Book Development Board revealed the number of Filipinos who read fell from 92 percent in 2007 to 88 percent in 2012.
The "audio Bible" is currently available in English, Tagalog and Cebuano but will soon be available in all Filipino languages.
