Authors: Leyre, Carla G., Sandra, Fernando, Baltasar and Alejandro.
In this project we are studying transplants in Spain, we are doing it in groups, we are 6. We are talking of transplants, showing videos and photos to clear up some questions, these project is very interesting, because if you are studying medicine, it can be for help.
We are showing graphics and information about transplants. There are also two videos about donors in generally.
This project is very interesting because lot of people die in one day, we can stop this!! But, we can only stop this by donating our organs or a part of it, it doesn't matter if when we donate we are a life or not.
Life is good, save lifes.
A life for another.

NUMBER OF TRANSPLANTS IN SPAIN
Creation of transplants
In the 25 years since its creation in 1989, the Spanish National Transplant Organization (ONT) has overseen more than 90,500 organ transplant operations, including over 57,000 kidney transplants, 21,576 liver transplants, 7,024 heart transplants, more than 3,200 lung transplants and over 1,500 pancreas transplant operations.
Why Be an Organ Donor?
Each year, thousands of people die while waiting for a transplant because no suitable donor can be found for them. Put your skin in the skin of a person who needs a transplant and they don't find the Person who wants to donate, now, do you want to donate organs when you die? You will save a lot of life's.
Here we have links for kids about transplants.
Here we have a picture of the interviews that we made. First we asked if they will be a life donor and we asked to adults and kids, 8 adults said yes and 2 said no, 6 kids said yes and 4 said no.
We made another question, the second one is if they will be a death donor, 9 adults said yes and 1 said no, we asked to kids too, 1 kid said no and 7 said yes.
If we are donors it's not bad for our selves, we can save life's only with a part of a pancreas or a kidney, imagine!!! There are 2 types of donors: life donors and death donor. We made interviews to adults and kids, we were asking if they will be a death donor or a life donor. That it is explained in the interviews.
It's very important to donate blood, too, because some people lose blood, so they can not survive without blood, they have to find the same type of blood and in the same part of the body.
If we continue improving donations we can do that more people stay alive and save a lot of life's. It's very important! Save life's! One day could be your turn!
