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.

Lawyers protest Yangon heritage sites sell-off
- Thomas Toe, Yangon
- October 17, 2012
The demonstrators, members of the Myanmar Lawyersâ€™ Network, said they had government permission to protest under new laws passed this year.
Kyi Myint, a member of the lawyersâ€™ network, said the decision to sell off the old High Court and the Police Commissionerâ€™s Office to local and Chinese developers was in violation of the governmentâ€™s own 1988 preservation law.
â€śWe wanted to let the people know and understand that we have a responsibility to preserve our national heritage,â€ť he said.
