Around 25,000 fans who attended the November 1 show at Los Andes Stadium in Bogota were asked to donate non-perishable food to help the indigenous Wayuú community in La Guajira, in northern Colombia, where in the last eight years more than 4,000 children have died due to malnourishment and a lack of drinking water.
The fans brought in nine tons of food and other items through the hunger-fighting charity the Challenger Foundation and Corazones Peluditos (Furry Hearts), an independent organization of 40 families who help feed and re-home abandoned animals.
A group of METALLICA fans in Colombia who call themselves the Lords Of Hardwire brought the initiative to the band's attention.
