ROMANIA (CelebrityAccess) – Metallica has reportedly donated €250,000 ($277,600) to support the construction of Romania’s first pediatric oncology hospital.

The band, which is very popular in Romania, made the donation ahead of their sold-out show Wednesday at Romania’s National Arena.

According to Metallica’s All Within My Hands nonprofit foundation, the funds went to the Daruieste Viata (Bestow Life) association, which is working to modernize Romania’s medical infrastructure, increase its cancer survival rate (which is reportedly way below the European Union average) and build the country’s first Pediatric Oncology and Radiotherapy Hospital.

The construction of the hospital began in 2018 and is expected to be completed in 2020.
