History

His father also moved to Paraguay in his 80s, to start an adventure exploring for oil and gas in the northern part of Paraguay.

Nowadays, Juan Enrique Rassmuss Raier is continuing with the entrepreneurial spirit of the Rassmuss’ and developing the social vocation that distinguishes his family. Together with Joanne Avery, his wife, he established the Juan Rassmuss Echecopar Foundation, with a focus on promoting sexual and reproductive health among Paraguayan adolescents as well as maternal outcomes, focusing on preeclampsia.
