Metallica Donate Quarter Million To Build Pediatric Hospital In Romania

Metallica has been committed to supporting various charity causes while on their WorldWired Tour. Recently, they donated 250,000 euros (roughly $279,000) to a Romanian association building the country’s first pediatric oncology hospital.

The donation to the Daruieste Viata (“Give Life”) nonprofit was handed out before the band’s sold-out show at Romania’s Arena Națională on Wednesday (August 14), the association revealed on its Facebook page. Carmen Uscatu, the president of Daruieste Viata, released the following statement regarding Metallica’s generous donation:

“The donation made by Metallica has a special meaning to our project. On one hand, their music inspires and touches so many Romanians, and at the same time so many Romanians are inspired by and contribute to the establishing of the first Pediatric Oncology and Radiotherapy Hospital in Romania, in order to give children with cancer a chance to live.”

The donation was made via Metallica’s All Within My Hands Foundation. Founded in 2017, All Within My Hands aims to create “sustainable communities by supporting workforce education, the fight against hunger, and other critical local services.” Learn more about the foundation here.
