Kimba District Council says they’re happy to be housing the family while continuing their efforts to attract a permanent doctor to the town.

They are working on bringing over a doctor who currently lives and works in South Africa.

The Council hopes to work through the migration process and welcome the permanent doctor to town by the end of the year.
