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 official urges boycott

â€śI think being nationalistic is also part of being God-loving,â€ť said Father Edwin Gariguez, executive secretary of the National Secretariat for Social Action (NASSA) of the Catholic Bishopsâ€™ Conference of the Philippines.
He said he believes the call of Albay Gov. Joey Salceda for Filipinos to boycott China made products to protest Beijingâ€™s â€śbullyingâ€ť in connection with the Spratlys dispute is a much better idea than resorting to violent means.
â€śPersonally, I think we need to do that. We donâ€™t want war. I agree with the governor that it should be active non-violence,â€ť said Gariguez.
