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.

Suu Kyi to head new parliamentary committee
- By Daniel Wynn, Yangon
- August 7, 2012
The 15-member committee is tasked with ensuring that government officials, the media, MPs and judicial bodies act in accordance
with Myanmarâ€™s laws, according to Nanda Kyaw Swa, deputy speaker of the lower house of parliament.
The newly formed parliamentary watchdog could be a prelude to the reform of the countryâ€™s legal system, which critics said was usedÂ by the former military junta to suppress its own people.
