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.

Father Prospero Tenorio of the St. Anthony of Padua parish in Hagonoy town, said these issues present a threat to Christian life and human morality and has proposed to combat them with L.I.F.E., or âlifting, indwelling, fulfilling and everlasting kindness,â or L.I.F.E.
The campaign came on the heels of a group of same-sex marriages over the weekend in Baguio City.
Gay activists yesterday appealed to Church leaders to refrain from attacking the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT)Â people.
Jheza Guiloan of the Progressive Organization of Gays urged religious leaders and government officials to support the rights of LGBTs rather than threatening them.
âEveryone has the right to have a family, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity,â Guiloan said.
Father Tenorio, however, supported the Churchâs position on the issues.
âWe can easily find fulfillment in life if we will do the will of God,â he said.
