Welcome to La Higuera

BE where
we NEED to be

We are a non-profit civil Association (Exp. IGPJ 649) born in the city of Rosario in 2003, dedicated to comprehensive health and community development in rural and isolated territories of our country.
Inspired by the philosophy of the doctor Esteban Laureano Maradona, our work is driven by solidarity in pursuit of the social inclusion of the most disadvantaged sectors of our society.
