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.

Sri Lankan Catholic journalists join protest
- Sri Lanka
- February 2, 2011
â€śMedia suppression is so dangerous now in the country,â€ť said Fredi Gamage, a Catholic journalist and editor of Meepura newspaper, during the rally in Colombo Feb. 1 to uphold the right of expression in Sri Lanka.
Anglican Father Marimuthupillai Sathivel said there arenâ€™t any attacks on â€śpro-governmentâ€ť media institutions in the country.
The protest followed a recent arson attack on Lanka-e-News office in Malabe and an appeal last week by priests and journalists to the UN to find Prageeth Ekneligoda, a Lanka-e-News journalist who disappeared on Jan. 24 last year.
