The woman is scheduled to undergo a surgery next Wednesday and her hospital in Beijing is seeking the help of Shanghai Blood Center to collect 400 milliliters of the Duffy blood type for the surgery.
The center hosts the nation’s rare blood bank and had recruited two people to donate 600 milliliters of the same Duffy blood type to the woman in June for her previous treatment.
Only two in every 1,000 Chinese have this rare blood group. Among Caucasians, it is 20 percent. Local foreigners are being urged to come forward and donate blood.
The Shanghai Blood Centre has a number of fixed donation sites around the city, a full list is on their website. You can also phone their hotline on 6275 8257.
