Berlin Art Hotel
The Berlin Art Hotel in Gyumri is a social pilot enterprise of the German Red Cross Berlin. Its aim is to support and develop medical care in the Gyumri branch of Berlin Center for Mothers and Children. After the earthquake of December 1988, the polyclinic "Center for Mothers and Children of Berlin" was created and functionally equipped by the "Berlin Aid for Armenia" working group from 1989 to 1993 under the direction of the German Red Cross. In 1996, the Berlin guest house was built there. The company supports the polyclinic, which was built and equipped thanks to the donations of the Berlin population, as well as the realization of other social projects. All income from the hotel and other commercial activities are used exclusively for social and non-profit purposes.
