Potential donors must be exclusively of Pakistani, Indian or Iranian descent, meaning the donor's birth parents are both 100 percent Pakistani, Indian or Iranian, and they must have Type O or Type A blood.
Officials said all donations must be coordinated with the blood bank in advance to ensure that additional compatibility testing is performed.
