first_img“It was massively important that the boys showed a lot of character after the first half to come back and get that point,” said Greening. We went there to come away with something, and believing that we could actually turn Worcester over. But it’s good that we finished with confidence and now we need a big game against Nottingham.”The Dragons had trailed 32-3 at the break and Greening admits there was more than a bit of soul searching in the London Welsh dressing room during the interval.  “I asked for a response at half-time and I’m very proud of the boys. We said ‘the only people who can change this is you and how you react will determine where we are going into next week’.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Phil Greening (C) during his international duty against Ireland in the Six Nations (2000) with Phil Vickery (L) and Jason Leonard(R)LONDON WELSH head coach Phil Greening says it’s all about momentum and not about finishing third as the Dragons complete their regular season fixture list against Nottingham at Old Deer Park on Saturday (2pm). The Dragons are guaranteed to finish fourth but can still pip the Cornish Pirates – who lead Welsh by four points – to a top three finish provided they slip up at Doncaster and Welsh do the business against Nottingham.However, Greening is not unduly unconcerned by where the Dragons finish, and sees Saturday more as an opportunity for Welsh to bounce back from last weekend’s defeat at Worcester and build some momentum ahead of the play-offs. “It really doesn’t matter; the two groups are going to be really tough anyway. Whoever’s in our group, whether it’s Worcester, Nottingham or whoever, it’s going to be tough,” he said.“It’s about momentum; I think we’ve got a lot to give. We’ve met the top four or five teams in the last few weeks and we’ve still got boys to come back, and I still think we’ve got a lot of growing to do. A win against Nottingham is crucial because we want to finish strongly at home. We want Old Deer Park to be a special place going into the play-offs.”Welsh will be keen to build on their second half performance against the Championship leaders at Sixways, which saw the Dragons fight back from 39-3 down to snatch a bonus point with four tries in the last 20 minutes. James Lewis crossed twice before Liam Gibson went over in the 79th minute and there was still time for Josh Drauniniu to race clear for his fourteenth try of the season. Welsh suffered a first half blitz at Sixways with Kai Horstmann, Marel Garvey, Andy Goode and Miles Benjamin all crossing, and Goode adding 12 points with the boot. “When you get a team that’s as clinical as Worcester you are going to get punished, and I thought Worcester were fantastic. Everything they did, they did on the money,” added Greening. “They’ve got a group of players with the experience of being in the Premiership and that experience really told – they were so clinical.“But let’s not take anything away from our boys, we let Worcester be clinical. We didn’t deliver and when things started going against us lost our confidence and it wasn’t until half-time that we got it back and you saw a different team in the second half.” 5 Feb 2000: The England front row of Phil Vickery, Phil Greening and Jason Leonard during the Six Nations Championship match against Ireland at Twickenham in London. \ Mandatory Credit: Alex Livesey /Allsport last_img read more

first_img New Zealand booked their place in the 2015 World Cup final with a narrow win over South Africa at rain-soaked Twickenham, their bid to become the first side to successfully defend their title still on track. Their ill-discipline meant they made hard work of it, conceding 13 penalties to South Africa’s six, but tries from Jerome Kaino and Beauden Barrett allowed them to close out a win against the Springboks, whose points all game from the boots of Handre Pollard and Pat Lambie.WHAT’S HOTSlick kicks – Putting boot to ball was a clear tactic of New Zealand’s. It wasn’t just one player doing it – Dan Carter, Aaron Smith, Nehe Milner-Skudder, Ma’a Nonu and Ben Smith all getting involved – or just one type of kick – there were grubbers, chips, Garryowens and more. The All Blacks looked to test South Africa under the high ball and turn them in defence – and in the second half it reaped rewards, although not directly. Beauden Barrett grubbered through for Julian Savea and although the winger knocked on as he tried to collect the ball, South Africa couldn’t clear from the resulting scrum, lost the ball and, a few phases later, Barrett went over in the corner after Ma’a Nonu drew JP Pietersen off his wing.All smiles: Beauden Barrett celebrates his second-half try. Photo: Getty ImagesBoks at breakdown – South Africa seemed to have the edge in a lot of the fiercely-contested breakdowns in the first period and won key turnovers deep in their own half, allowing them to clear pressure. Francois Louw played a significant role as the Springboks looked to control the contact area, but the backs were getting involved too – Damian De Allende and Handre Pollard also turning over ball when at the ruck. There weren’t many scrums, but the Boks generally had the nudge there too.Defensive wall – The Boks never looked like scoring a try but, more significantly, the All Blacks never looked like leaking one. Their defence was solid throughout as they missed just three tackles while the Boks missed 19. Even when South Africa went to their go-to weapon of a driving maul in New Zealand’s 22, the All Blacks drove them back. In fact, they stole four South Africa lineouts during the game – no mean feat – and in the final minutes, as the Boks tried to launch a match-winning attack from close to their own line, New Zealand made tackle after tackle to contain them in the 22. They may have conceded a lot of penalties but their defence was not going to concede a try.On target: Handre Pollard slotted five from five from the tee. Photo: Getty ImagesWHAT’S NOTGetting it in the neck – Officials were given a directive before this World Cup to look out for neck rolls at the breakdown and Joe Moody was penalised for one on Duane Vermeulen in the first half, allowing South Africa to clear when New Zealand had been awarded a penalty for a lineout offence. The same happened to South Africa in the second half when Victor Matifeld was pinged. It was the number of tackles that seemed to end up around neck height that was more of a concern however. Schalk Burger was one such player whose arm often ended up at his opponent’s neck when he made a hit – but he was far from the only one. Players need to get lower when making a hit.Pre-match entertainment – All the flags and bright lights being waved around behind the posts before the teams came out was reminiscent of a group of air-traffic controllers bringing a plane into its designated gate. All rather unnecessary.Odd facepaint – One member of the crowd was spotted with an NFL logo painted on his cheek. Whether or not he’d found himself at the wrong event, we’re not sure, but it certainly seemed a strange choice of design. Let’s hope he now knows what the better oval-ball sport is having watched this semi-final!Dive time: Jerome Kaino scores an early try in the semi-final.

first_imgIain Henderson is earmarked for big things with Ireland and Ulster. So what do you need to know about the giant lock? Those who know him best reveal all. This first appeared in the April issue of Rugby World magazine. “Those are the kinds of things that probably aren’t credited enough. That’s just because it’s not flashy.”So is Henderson averse to putting himself first? McComb weighs in: “Oh aye, and he’s totally selfless off the park. He’s married, has a couple dogs. He’s looked at houses. He wants to get a herd of cows and a few other things… Obviously he’s from the family farm. He’ll have a lot of time for anybody.”Yet humility can belie the beastliness. Toner thinks he’s becoming the enforcer. Former Springbok back-row and current Ulster player Marcell Coetzee recognises that, as he explains: “The biggest asset Hendy brings to it at the moment is his physicality, particularly in the breakdown areas and carrying. He’s just an explosive, all-round lock. He has all the attributes to go and be one of the greats.”TEST CHARACTEREveryone interviewed here talks about Henderson’s performances as a British & Irish Lion, in New Zealand last June and July. McWhirter feels he was unlucky to miss the bench for the deciding Test after his final midweek display against the Chiefs. The rest were just impressed.He was not an instant Test sensation. Henderson has had to climb over a few competitors to get to where he is now and to realise his physical potential.Raw power: Carrying against La Rochelle (Getty Images)Ex-Ireland tighthead Mike Ross knows all too well about Henderson’s progression.“One of the nicknames when he first started with Ireland was ‘The Llama’ because he would just wander around the place,” Ross remembers. “At that time, in his first camp, he’d miss lineouts and stuff. If you watched him in the U20 World Cup along with Tadhg Furlong, it took time for that player to grow into a force.“He is a bit of a freak. I’ve been cut in half by him a few times. But he’s the kind of guy who would cut you in half, stand over you, look down and then say something like, ‘How’s it going, Rossy?’“He’s a good scrummager. I was there when he first came across from the back row to push in the second row and I remember asking Rory Best if he would be alright to do the job at the weekend. Rory just said, ‘Don’t worry about the weekend mate, he’ll be fine.’ He was.”Related: Meet Ireland centre Bundee AkiAnother ex-Ireland forward, Mike McCarthy, has his own views on Henderson. Upon hearing that so many think the Ulsterman barely talks, McCarthy laughs. “He comes across as quiet and reserved, but he’s such a genuinely lovely bloke and he has a strange sense of humour that I love. We had a good bit of craic. It’s tough to give you an example but that story from an old interview in Rugby World about him conducting some experiments, by putting stuff in the microwave, that is exactly what he is like. That is a great example. He’s a funny f*****!”McCarthy has also loved Henderson’s progression on the pitch. “He’s very explosive in the lineout. The big thing for me was him calling lineouts in the autumn against Argentina. Big Toner was given a rest. Since Paul O’Connell retired, Dev has been the lineout caller, but on that day it was Hendy and James Ryan who were playing. They gave him a shot at calling, giving Hendy massive responsibility. I was really impressed by how he went. That was great for (head coach) Joe Schmidt to know he had Hendy to rely on.”Giving it some Welly: Excelling for the Lions against the Hurricanes (Getty Images)WHERE NEXT?McWhirter sees Henderson as a natural successor to Rory Best as Ulster skipper. Marshall can see him leading more too, and McComb has enjoyed seeing him animated in post-match huddles. Ross knows Henderson can lose shape in the scrum, but he has the power to make a difference anyway and the prop expects him to improve technically. McCarthy just wants him to call lineouts.Looking at the bigger picture, former Ireland and Lions lock Donal Lenihan has the last say on Henderson’s future.“Henderson is an outstanding talent who just needs to increase his work-rate and add more consistency to his game,” he says. “We were offered a true glimpse of what he is capable of in the last midweek game of the 2017 Lions tour, against the Chiefs in Hamilton. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS THE SIGHT of Iain Henderson hitting opponents like a dance floor is now commonplace for any fan who watches Ulster and Ireland. However, there is more to the versatile back-five forward than pancaking defenders on the way to inflicting yet more trauma on his rivals.To find out more about the 26-year-old, we enlist the help of those who have known him since his younger days…SIMPLE BEGINNINGS“When he arrived I was getting to the end, he was one of the young pups,” says former Ulster lock Neil McComb, who captained Henderson with Ulster’s development side, the Ravens. “He was a genetic freak – just naturally good at what he did, especially in the gym, in terms of strength. He’s one of those second-rows who doesn’t look massive and muscly, but he has a giant frame to him and is an incredibly powerful guy.”Talk to anyone about Henderson and before too long, words like “freak” or “monster” come up. No qualification is needed – lurking menace is implied.Talking shop: Henderson chips in during an Ulster huddle (Getty Images)But something else spoken about, almost as often as his raw power, is how quiet the former Queen’s University maths student has been since he first showed up at his local pro team.Related: Jacob Stockdale makes the cover of Rugby WorldTony McWhirter was Ulster’s No 8 when they beat Colomiers 21-6 in the 1999 Heineken Cup final. These days you can hear the dental surgeon talk all things Ulster on BBC Northern Ireland.“He’s very much his own man,” McWhirter says of Henderson. “He’s very quiet, married early as well, which in the modern world is quite unusual. He’s very much a man from home, he does a lot of work for his old school, in terms of going back – he’s obviously well thought of there. He lives in the city, all his friends live here. He gives a lot back to Academy, the club side he came from, plus Queen’s University as well.”Henderson’s current team-mate Luke Marshall takes things a step further in chiselling down to the core of his giant pal. “Simple is probably a good way to describe him! He’s not your typical superstar – because that’s the sort of status he’s at, at the minute.“What’s quite funny about Hendy is that, outside of playing rugby, he doesn’t really have a massive interest. He doesn’t really watch other games. There have been big games in the past and we’ll be talking about the team and he won’t even know some of the players! These are maybe household names and he’s just so relaxed.“But no matter who he plays against he has no fear. For him it’s just rugby, like. He still treats it like a hobby in some ways, which is great.”Steamroller: Going over the top of Eben Etzebeth (Getty Images)A FORCE AWAKENSIn November, Henderson found himself gaining a lot of attention after knocking South Africa’s guard dog, Eben Etzebeth, to the dirt with a big carry. How had that lifted Irish team-mates, we wondered.“He’s turned into the enforcer he always had the potential to become,” Devin Toner said of his fellow lock at that time. “When he was coming through we didn’t call him ‘man-child’ for nothing. He’s a monster in the gym and a monster on the pitch. It’s great to see him turning into the player he can be.“When you have someone who is the talisman like Etzebeth, he’s their captain, he’s renowned for being the physical man on the pitch. When you see Hendy stand up to him and get the better (of him), it’s brilliant for the team and it gives you a real gee-up.”Related: Ireland’s Grand Slam heroesHenderson told the Press Association on the eve of this Six Nations that the hype was something out of nothing, though. “That was a two-second period in an 80-minute game,” he said of his blitzing carry towards Etzebeth.“People may look at that and say I’d played brilliantly because I ran over the top of him, but if I do everything else wrong in the game then I’ve played badly. And if Eben happens to miss that tackle but is excellent everywhere else, then he’s still played really well. So that’s probably where you have to take things with a pinch of salt. It’s not about a highlights-reel kind of approach.In the mix: Henderson clashes with Maro Itoje and others (Getty Images)“It’s the guys that make the game so much easier for their team-mates that I look at, respect and want to emulate. For years at Ulster and with Ireland too, that’s been Chris Henry. If Jacob Stockdale makes a great break, it probably has something to do with a really good ruck clean at the breakdown before, from one of the forwards.center_img Monster’s ball: Iain Henderson claims a lineout against France (Getty Images) “He is the prototype of the modern lock, with the skills to play back-row. With that allied to the power, ball-carrying and lineout work, he has the ability to become a truly outstanding international second-row.”This feature first appeared in the April issue of Rugby World magazine.last_img read more

Utility forwardsJean-Luc du Preez (Sale Sharks, 13 caps, 10 pts)Rynhardt Elstadt (Toulouse, 2 caps, 0 pts)Undercooked Boks still have potential to surpriseBack in April, Jon Cardinelli gave his thoughts on the Springboks’ lack of game time and their options in most positionsSouth Africa  – through no fault of their own – have not played a Test since lifting the Webb Ellis Cup on 2 November 2019.The Covid-19 pandemic has put paid to all plans to progress – at least on the field of play. In January 2020, new coach Jacques Nienaber spoke about using the matches against Scotland and Georgia to develop a wider squad with the Rugby Championship and subsequent Lions series in mind.When I caught up with Nienaber again in June 2020 – in the middle of South Africa’s hard lockdown – he used buzzwords like ‘resilience’ and ‘adaptability’ and half-jokingly predicted that the Boks wouldn’t play again until the Lions series in July 2021.And yet, as the Lions series looms and as Nienaber’s prophecy looks set to come pass, the situation is not nearly as hopeless as it may seem. Nienaber and director of rugby Rassie Erasmus, who remains hands-on with regards to selection and strategy despite stepping down as head coach after the World Cup, should not be underestimated.Three years ago, many questioned the pair’s decision to leave Munster to coach a Bok side in the midst of a historically bad slump.Erasmus’s plan to align the franchises was mocked by some, while his claim that the team would bounce back to win the 2019 World Cup was universally dismissed. But the Boks turned things around quickly. They beat England in the series staged in South Africa and went on to end a nine-year drought in New Zealand three months later.Director of rugby Rassie Erasmus and head coach Jacques Nienaber (Gallo Images/Getty Images)Results weren’t the only priority, though, as Erasmus blooded 19 new players and experimented with a host of different combinations over the course of the 2018 season.Why are the events of 2018 and early 2019 relevant now? The work done across that period has laid the platform for the Lion series and the subsequent 2023 World Cup.Developing depthWhile the team impressed at the 2019 tournament in Japan and Erasmus’s tactical genius was plain for all to see, it’s in the next World Cup cycle where this group should be at the peak of its powers.Only three players – Tendai ‘Beast’ Mtawarira, Francois Louw and Schalk Brits – have retired since RWC 2019. There have been notable injury concerns since that tournament, with fly-half Handré Pollard, World Rugby Player of the Year Pieter-Steph du Toit and locks Lood de Jager and RG Snyman all suffering significant setbacks.South Africa aren’t short of experienced replacements, though. Consider that Marcell Coetzee, André Esterhuizen, the Du Preez twins, Dan and Jan-Luc, and Dillyn Leyds were considered surplus to requirements when the World Cup squad was selected two years ago. They are now among the top-performing club players in the northern hemisphere.Erasmus exposed a large group of players to international rugby in 2018 and early 2019. Those fringe players will be pushing for further opportunities in the near future. The Sharks trio of Curwin Bosch, Sikhumbuzo Notshe and Ox Nche, Bulls forwards Marco van Staden and Jason Jenkins, as well as the Bulls scrum-halves Ivan van Zyl and Embrose Papier all fall into this category.Several veterans have returned to South Africa to add another column or two to an already impressive depth chart. Former Munster flank Arno Botha recently won the Currie Cup with the Bulls, while utility back Johan Goosen could make an impression for the Pretoria-based franchise in the upcoming Rainbow Cup.Morné Steyn, who broke Lions hearts in 2009 after he struck a series-clinching penalty in the second Test, is still winning matches at the age of 36 with his unerring goalkicking. Any one of these men could be plucked out of left field and asked to do a job in the Lions series.Morne Steyn kicks the match-winning penalty in the second Test of the 2009 series (Getty Images)There’s no shortage of younger players pushing for a spot in the wider squad – and indeed the starting XV. Sharks full-back Aphelele Fassi has been tipped as the next big thing for the Boks. Last year, however, during Fassi’s injury-enforced absence, several outside backs rose through the domestic ranks to give Nienaber and Erasmus food for thought.Sevens stars Rosko Specman, Kurt-Lee Arendse and Stedman Gans caught the eye, as did the Lions centre Wandisile Simelane. Damian Willemse and Warrick Gelant, who were part of the wider squad in Japan yet hardly featured, are ready for more responsibility at Test level.Familiar facesThe names listed above highlight the depth across most positions. That said, there’s no good reason to make wholesale changes to the 23 that won the World Cup final.Toulouse star Cheslin Kolbe has taken his game forward since the World Cup, and will be the first name on the Bok team sheet this July. Centre Damian de Allende has been in terrific form for Munster, while scrum-half Faf de Klerk continues to sharpen his game while on duty for the ever-improving Sale Sharks.

At the time, it was a somewhat contentious statement given the Boks were coming off record losses to New Zealand and Ireland – and occupied seventh place in the World Rugby Rankings.Three years later, and the quality of South Africa’s individual players and indeed the depth available to the national coach is patent. The competition within the squad has been key to the team’s recent success.Nienaber and Erasmus are unlikely to play favourites in the Lions series. They will show an appreciation for experience, which as history shows is always significant in a temperamental battle with the Lions, but they will reward domestic form, too.Sharks centre Lukhanyo Am during the recent SA Rugby Preparation Series (Gallo Images/Getty Images)Erasmus has a penchant for thinking outside the box. In 2018, he backed a new-look side to start against England in the first game of a three-Test series staged in South Africa. Both he and Nienaber understand what it takes to bring a new mix of players together to succeed against top-flight opposition.The likes of De Klerk and Willie le Roux were recalled ahead of that series against England after spending a year in the international wilderness. Brits was brought out of retirement. Aphiwe Dyantyi, Sbu Nkosi and Snyman were picked in the starting XV to make their Test debuts.What’s more, Erasmus and Nienaber got players from different races, cultures and backgrounds to work towards a common goal. Siya Kolisi, the country’s first black skipper, took the initial step towards unifying the team and the nation. The series victory marked a turning point for South African rugby.More recently, Bok assistant coach Felix Jones has been tasked with monitoring the South African players based in Europe. Jones has been liaising with players of interest since RWC 2019.Alignment camps will be staged for local players in South Africa over the next two months. If all goes to plan, the Boks could play a couple of warm-up Tests, possibly against the USA, before they face Warren Gatland’s team.It’s hardly an ideal scenario. For some, a dearth of on-field preparation may prove a handy excuse in the event of failure. The Bok coaches, however, have developed a reputation for making lemonade out of lemons. Everything has been against the team since Erasmus first came to power in 2018. Somehow they’ve managed to rise to the top of the rankings and win the Rugby Championship and World Cup.Erasmus and Nienaber are used to working within a quirky South African system that often inhibits rather than helps the national team. They’ve come to expect and embrace the curve balls rather than fear them.The situation regarding the players’ lack of game time may not be as decisive as some have suggested. South Africa defied expectations in 2019, and they still have the means to go toe-to-toe with the Lions in 2021. South Africa squad to face the LionsA 46-man South Africa squad has been selected ahead of their three-Test series against the British & Irish Lions 2021.This Springboks squad will also play two Tests against Georgia on 2 and 9 July in preparation for their series against the Lions, while the South Africa A team that faces the Lions on Wednesday 14 July will also be selected from this group.South Africa head coach Jacques Nienaber has selected all available members of the 2019 Rugby World Cup-winning squad – only the retired Tendai ‘Beast’ Mtawarira, Francois Louw and Schalk Brits as well as the injured Warrick Gelant are missing.Two players in the squad also represented the Springboks in their winning series against the Lions in 2009 – Frans Steyn and Morné Steyn – while Duane Vermeulen played against the Lions in two warm-up matches on that tour 12 years ago.At the other end of the experience spectrum are the eight uncapped players in the squad – hooker Joseph Dweba, full-back Aphelele Fassi, lock Nicolaas Janse van Rensburg, scrum-half Sanele Nohamba, centre Wandisile Simelane, wings Yaw Penxe and Rosko Specman, and back-rower Jasper Wiese.LIONS 2021 LATEST NEWSLeicester Tiger Wiese is one of nine players based in the UK and Ireland, including five from Sale Sharks.The Boks haven’t played since winning the World Cup in November 2019 and Nienaber said: “It is a surreal feeling to name a Springbok squad after such a long absence from international rugby, and the fact that these players will have a chance to measure themselves in such a special tour makes it even more remarkable.“A huge challenge lies ahead, and the fact that we will be taking on this task after a 20-month absence from international rugby means we need to hit the ground running.”South Africa squad to face the LionsBack threeAphelele Fassi (Cell C Sharks, uncapped)Cheslin Kolbe (Toulouse, 14 caps, 40 pts)Willie le Roux (Toyota Verblitz, 61 caps, 60 pts)Makazole Mapimpi (Cell C Sharks, 14 caps, 70 pts)Sbu Nkosi (Cell C Sharks, 11 caps, 40 pts)Yaw Penxe (Cell C Sharks, uncapped)Rosko Specman (Toyota Cheetahs, uncapped)Damian Willemse (DHL Stormers, 6 caps, 5 pts)CentresLukhanyo Am (Cell C Sharks, 15 caps, 15 pts)Damian de Allende (Munster, 47 caps, 30 pts)Jesse Kriel (Canon Eagles, 46 caps, 60 pts)Wandisile Simelane (Emirates Lions, uncapped)Frans Steyn (Toyota Cheetahs, 67 caps, 141 pts)Fly-halvesElton Jantjies (Pau, 37 caps, 281 pts)Handré Pollard (Montpellier, 48 caps 457 pts)Morné Steyn (Vodacom Bulls, 66 caps, 736 pts)Morne Steyn and Frans Steyn team up in defence at RWC 2011 (Getty Images)Scrum-halvesFaf de Klerk (Sale Sharks, 30 caps, 20 pts)Herschel Jantjies (DHL Stormers, 10 caps, 20 pts)Sanele Nohamba (Cell C Sharks, uncapped)Cobus Reinach (Montpellier, 14 caps, 30 pts)PropsThomas du Toit (Cell C Sharks, 12 caps, 0 pts)Steven Kitshoff (DHL Stormers, 47 caps, 5 pts)Vincent Koch (Saracens, 21 caps, 0 pts)Frans Malherbe (DHL Stormers, 38 caps, 5 pts)Ox Nché (Cell C Sharks, 1 cap, 0 pts)last_img read more

Photo/Zaida Bastos[Anglican Journal – Anglican Church of Canada] The Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF) has a new agreement with the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) that will provide $10.8 million dollars over five years for projects focusing on maternal and child health in 59 villages in Burundi, Mozambique and Tanzania.“Through this five-year joint program, PWRDF and African partners will deepen and extend the impact of work already accomplished with CIDA funding in 2009-2011,” said Adele Finney, executive director of PWRDF in a statement.“We’ve had exceptional results from those programs previously funded,” Finney told the Journal, adding that PWRDF staff is excited about the opportunity to expand on the work already begun with its local partners in the three countries.PWRDF will contribute about a half million dollars per year to the program and CIDA will provide the remaining $8.1 million in a three-to-one match. “While it is more money from CIDA, it is also more money that PWRDF is putting forward for this program,” Finney explained. She added that the program will not require a separate fundraising strategy, but PWRDF will have to “communicate the good work and how it will be extended.”For example, the new funding will pay for 100 more bicycle ambulances. According to PWRDF’s website, in Mozambique, one ambulance is currently serving a population of 400,000. Patients are sometimes carried on foot to the hospital or can’t get to a health centre at all. Pregnant women often arrive exhausted, suffer miscarriage en route or die. Bicycle ambulances have been shown to make a difference, serving approximately 2,000 to 3,000 people.According to PWRDF, the new funding is expected to reach about 1.5 million people on issues of health and nutrition, cultural practices that negatively impact women’s health and better access to health care for pregnant women, mothers and children. Funding will also be used to build new clinics and train 1,690 community health workers, HIV and AIDS educators and caregivers in villages, as well as improve access to clean water and improve farming techniques.

Commission on the Status of Women. Photo: Ecumenical Women[Anglican Communion News Service] The Anglican Communion delegation to a recent U.N. meeting has lifted up the full inclusion of women at all levels of decision-making and leadership in the church as an issue for action.In a statement from the 59th Session of the UN Commission for the Status of Women (CSW59), the all-woman delegation urged Anglicans and Episcopalians to take bold, giant steps towards gender equality.Gender-based violence, climate change, human trafficking and modern slavery, statelessness and birth registration are highlighted in the statement signed by the 19 Anglican Communion delegates, each officially representing her province.The statement calls on church leaders to lobby their governments for the implementation of policies improving women’s access to healthcare, limiting carbon dioxide emissions and promoting the use of ‘green’ technologies.The Anglican women delegates also agreed on the importance of grassroots action where local churches use their connections, create awareness and educate communities on such critical issues as ending child marriages, rape and domestic violence. In addition, they encouraged local churches to use ministry opportunities such as baptism to raise awareness of the importance of registering the birth of children.According to U.N. data, one in three women is a victim of gender-based violence. The statement highlights the importance of men and women working together: “Many women feel unable to speak out about their experiences, or feel unheard, because of legal and cultural constraints. We welcome men and boys who recognize the equal humanity of women and girls and encourage them to join us in eradicating gender-based violence.”The statement also invites provinces of the Anglican Communion to support the Global Freedom Network, a faith-based joint initiative of the Pope and the Archbishop of Canterbury to eradicate modern slavery and human trafficking by 2020.“Gender equality applies to all human beings and should be a discussion for all women and men, girls and boys,” concludes the statement.The Anglican Communion comprised delegates  from Australia; Hong Kong; Jordan; Malawi; Myanmar; Papua New Guinea; Aotearoa, New Zealand & Polynesia; Brazil; Japan; Sri Lanka; Swaziland and South Africa; USA; Canada; Ghana and England.The CSW59 took place on March 9-20 at the U.N. headquarters in New York.Download the statement in PDF format.For more information, contact the Rev.
