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.

US pledges continued Philippines support
- October 24, 2012
"There will be continuity. We will continue our support to free trade, no economic coercion and free speech, whoever wins in the elections," said Ambassador Harry Thomas.
Thomas was referring to an ongoing Chinese military build-up in the disputed South China Sea.
Doyle Stout, president of the Republicans Abroad, said the US will maintain its support for the Philippines' right to protect its territorial interests in the disputed region.
"The US government will be behind the Philippines no matter who wins in the elections," said Stout.
