Metallica donated around $279,000 towards a Romanian pediatric oncology hospital.
The donation to the Daruieste Viata (“Give Life”) nonprofit was announced on its Facebook page.
“The final leg of the European tour starts with a very special donation,” a press release stated. “Together with fans attending the show at Arena Națională in Bucharest, Romania and a generous sponsorship by Mastercard, Metallica presented Daruieste Viata (The Give Life Association) with €250,000 before the concert.”
It continued, “Inspired by Mastercard’s own €1,000,000 donation towards the Daruieste Viata project earlier this year, Metallica’s gift will contribute to the endowment of the first Pediatric Oncology and Radiotherapy Hospital in Romania with the latest medical technologies and equipment.”
The band has been known to support a community organization in every part of the world that they visit. This is the latest charitable action from the band during the European leg of their “WorldWired Tour.”
