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.

Some 14 priests from Mandalay Archdiocese and the Salesian congregation concelebrated a mass today before processing around the church together with the relics of Don Bosco as well as the Blessed Sacrament.
Maria Muriel Htay, a widowed parishioner from the church, said she forgot her worry and challenges when she saw the relics of Don Bosco.
Since childhood, she has known about Don Bosco but now seeing the relics is like meeting with him personally.
The relics are due to leave Myanmar on April 30.
