Celebrating the Life of Maggy Barnfield

It is with great sadness that we share news of the loss of Maggy Barnfield on January 8, 2022. Without Maggy, Rayjon would not be what it is today. She built friendships and partnerships in Haiti that continue to this day. She will be forever loved and greatly missed.

A celebration of Maggy’s life will be held at a later date (to be announced).
