A doctor in Charlottesville will help even more people thanks to a generous donation.

Dr. Narinder Arora donates his time to treat Virginia's Indians. For all his help, the United Methodist Church gave him $5,000.

The doctor said that Native Americans in our state suffer from lack of medical care. "They've been ignored. They do not have houses. They've been denied care. They're nutritionally poor and they eat what they get. As a result, they have severe obesity," explained Dr. Arora.

The Mattaponi Indians honor Dr. Arora by calling him "Healing Eagle." It's estimated about 20,000 Native Americans live in Virginia.
