In 1985, a group from across Ontario traveled to Haiti on a Poverty Awareness Trip. Two of the travelers, Ray Wyrzykowski and John Barnfield returned home inspired by what they had experienced. They told their stories to many people throughout South-Western Ontario and encouraged others to go and experience life in Haiti for themselves.
The Rayjon Organization was born in January 1986. Thirty years later, over 3000 people have participated in a Rayjon trip and have experienced firsthand the richness of life in many Developing Countries.
