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.

Mangalore court shoots down challenge to bishops
- February 15, 2011
Melwyn P. Noronha, a Mangalore diocese lawyer, hailed the verdict as a â€ślandmarkâ€ť decision and an example of the Indian justice systemâ€™s impartiality and respect for Church laws.
The United Christian Association and several local organizations filed the case in November. However the court on February 11 dismissed the action, calling it â€śunmaintainable.â€ť
The association challenged rules that barred parishioners from Church bodies for filing cases against the Church or priests.
