[Tulleken & Associates] Anglican Archbishop, Njongonkulu Ndungane, has added his voice to the Western Cape Premier's call for the flood stricken region of the South-western Cape to be declared a disaster area.

"Having visited the area this morning and paid a courtesy call to the Anglican archdeacon, I am particularly concerned about the plight of the poor and have asked HOPE AFRICA, our diocesan development organisation, to assess the situation and to indicate a proper response by the church.

"My heart goes out to the people, who are in my prayers, and I agree with Premier Martinus van Schalkwyk that government assistance is urgently needed."
