The band just made this donation ahead of their sold-out concert in Romania’s National Arena. Also, this donate was inspired by Mastercard’s own €1,000,000 donation towards the Daruieste Viata project.

Here’s the statement from All Within My Hands:

“The donation made by Metallica has a special meaning for 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 establishment of the first Pediatric Oncology and Radiotherapy Hospital in Romania. In order to give children with cancer a chance to live. On the other hand, the contribution of Mastercard, that pledged a sponsorship worth €1,000,000 to #NoiFacemUnSpital initiative. That has been a real drive in inspiring a legend like Metallica to contribute to our cause as well. We are grateful to all who make this project possible.”
