Karuna was produced by the Maya Gold Foundation and filmed and edited by Lara Usifer. Lara, a student at SUNY New Paltz, joined us on the 2019 trip to Nepal. “I had the good fortune of being a part of the Maya Gold Foundation trip to Nepal in April of 2019, and traveled alongside the sixteen Hudson Valley teens that attended. My hope is that this film captures their spirit, enthusiasm, and deep empathy for the Nepali people. I certainly witnessed it every day,” commented Lara.
