With the slogan A true hero never dies, the Ministry of Health held Goiás, in Goiânia, a mobilização relâmpago (flash mob) to educate the populace about the importance of donating organs and tissues.

Through Transplantation Center, in partnership with the Fire Brigade, the Department of Health brought together approximately 400 people and presented choreography team assembled by Gustav Ritter Cultural Center with the participation of 80 firefighters at the military academy and 40 students of the Centre Cultural.

The choreography ended with the beating of a big heart in the middle of the square. The purpose of the event, a pioneer in Goiás, was to mobilize and sensitize the population about the importance and value of humanitarian donation of organs and tissues. According to the Brazilian Alliance for Organ and Tissue Donation (Adopt) in Goiás, almost 1,700 people waiting for transplants. The department took this initiative to raise awareness of the need to save lives through organ donation and also because of the large number of people waiting for donations, says Secretary of Health Antonio Faleiros Son. He believes that there is not necessarily a strength in relation to organ donation, but a lack of knowledge about the importance of this act by the population, hence the importance of such demonstrations, he said.

The manager of the Transplantation Center of Goiás, Luciano Bernadino Leon, defines the campaign as something unprecedented in terms of state and even Brazil. He believes Goiás has the capacity and structure to meet a possible increase in the number of transplants performed. Currently, the state performs kidney transplants, pancreas, corneas and bone marrow. Although this year is due to take heart and liver transplants. Until April this year the state recorded 414 cornea transplants, 19 kidney, 14 bone marrow and pancreas.

A single donor has the chance to save or improve the quality of life of at least 25 people. Can be transplanted organs (kidney, heart, liver, lung, intestine, pancreas) and tissues (cornea, bone, tendon, skin, muscle). Some may be donated in life, others only after brain death, when the patient is still in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), and the functioning of its organs maintained appliances.
