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.

More than 2,000 students from mainland China have recently applied to 87 universities in Taiwan, with 1,742 registrations already confirmed, according to a joint studentsâ€™ recruitment commission in Taipei.
This is the first year that students from the mainland have been permitted to apply to universities in Taiwan.
About 560 students have applied to Fu Jen, though only 40 will be accepted. Two other Catholic universities â€“ Providence University in central Taichung and Wenzao Ursuline College of Foreign Languages in southern Kaohsiung â€“ are also accepting applications, though they have similarly low rates of acceptance.
