A Nepalese doctor from Akron General Medical Center is back in his home country to help it recover from the recent earthquake.

Dr. Ganesh Chaudhary is in Nepal for three weeks with a team of other Nepalese doctors to help with medical needs.

Lee Sahadi is the executive director of Medical Staff Administration at Akron General. She says other doctors at the hospital will cover for Chaudhary while he is away.

"I think that everyone is so proud of him for taking this initiative, for having this kind of passion and commitment to giving back, regardless of his family being in the tragedy," Sahadi says. "He just is such a good persona and he has so much passion for this."

Sahadi says Chaudhary’s family in Kathmandu is safe but traumatized by the aftershocks.

She says Akron General is also supporting Chaudhary by giving him about five suitcases of medical supplies. These include antibiotics, IVs, cast materials and water filtration bottles.
