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.

City's chief engineer shot dead

- September 7, 2012
Nelson Morales was gunned down as he left Estancia Church at around 10am after attending a wedding service, a police spokesman said.
It is thought that the killing may have been politically motivated. The engineer, who was from Malinao, was planning to run in the town's mayoral elections next year.
He once served under Vice President Jejomar Binay while the latter was mayor of Makati City. He was also chairman of Binay's United Nationalist Alliance Party in Albay province.
"I mourn the killing of Nelson Morales," Binay said after being told about the shooting.
"I admired his dedication to public service and his desire to serve his home town."
