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 Richard Hla Min Oo from Mandalay Archdiocese, said radio is very important for village people, especially catechists and those working for evangelization, because they could share news and knowledge of Christianity by listening to the RVA programs.
Listenersβ meetings in Tamil, Kayin, Myanmar and Kachin languages are taking place in the dioceses of Yangon, Pathein, Mandalay and Myitkyina until Jan. 25.
Father Oo said listeners like the programs so RVA must work hard to make them relevant to the modern world.
βFinance is not the only problem, finding local contribution to programming is also among our challenges,β Father Oo said.
