The Board of NAISDA would like to profoundly apologise to Rayma Johnson, Rikarli, Rhimi and their families for the use of an image of their recently deceased and greatly loved daughter and sister, Rininya Joyce Johnson Page, in publicity leading up to this year’s end of year show.

Rininya was a loved and respected member of the NAISDA family and we deeply regret the hurt and distress that this has caused.

We pay our respect to Rayma and her family during this their time of great sadness and loss. Rininya’s time at NAISDA remains strongly etched in the memory of all who knew her and who continue to be saddened by her passing in such tragic circumstances. The light with which she filled NAISDA will long continue to shine.

Chair NAISDA Ltd
