1900s
Transfer of the Red Crescent to the Concession of Şişli Etfal Hospital

The Kızılay Maden Suları, dating back to the 8th century BC, have flowed throughout history for healing and beneficence. The Kızılay Maden Suları, formerly known as "Karahisar Suyu", became famous and widespread during the reign of Abdulhamid II. Karahisar Suyu was transferred to the concession of Şişli Etfal Hospital to generate funds for the financing of the hospital.

1926
Entrusted to Us from Our Great Leader

Our Great Leader, Mustafa Kemal Atatūrk fell ill in Afyonkarahisar during the War of Independence and recovered by drinking mineral water brought from Gazlı Lake. He ensured the establishment of a factory in this location and he donated this factory to the Red Crescent in 1926.

1932
Medalled Mineral Water

In a competition held in London in 1932, the mineral content and quality of Kızılay’s mineral water was honored with the "gold medal".

2014

Serving with its only factory in Afyonkarahisar until 2014, Kızılay Maden Suları identified another source by considering the high magnesium content in Erzincan during this year and established another factory. Thus, the goal of delivering mineral waters with the most valuable minerals to people was taken one step further.
