Ward Van Lines sponsors Fernando Parrado at the LACMA convention.

May 19, 2015
During the last few days of February the LACMA (Latin American & Caribbean International Movers Association) Convention was held in the beautiful resort of Punta del Este, Uruguay.

As part of the convention Ward Van Lines sponsored the keynote speaker Mr. Fernando Parrado, survivor of the Miracle in the Andes.

Fernando´s presentation is considered a once-in-a-lifetime experience due to the high demand he has as a conference speaker, and for the final results of his survival story, in which, after being trapped for 72 days in the mountains along with 16 other survivors, he and Roberto Canessa hiked through the peaks of the Andes mountain range for almost 10 days before being helped by a Chilean mule driver, Mr Sergio Catalán.

Fernando spoke about his experience and the misery, pain, and fear that he went through, and the knowledge that the past cannot be changed, but the future can, based on our attitudes and actions.
