Metallica has contributed €250,000 ($277,365) to the construction of the first Pediatric Oncology and Radiotherapy Hospital in Romania with the latest medical technologies and equipment.

Members of the metal band presented a check to the Asociatia Daruieste Viata (The Give Life Association) before their concert at the Arena Nationala in Bucharest.

Mastercard made a bigger donation towards the Daruieste Viata project earlier this year.

"The donation made by Metallica has a special meaning to our project," said Carmen Uscatu, President of the Asociatia Daruieste Viata.

She added, "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."

Metallica is on the final leg of their European tour.
