equally well but leave without paying. Restaurant de Couer went bankrupt
in its first year. That was when our founder first became involved, helping
in the resurection of 1986. Since then Restauraunt de Coeur has gone from
strength to strength; now numbers in the hundreds offering good meals to
the poor in several European countries. Restaurant Corazon in the the center
of Trujillo is the first in Peru. We have altered the original design somewhat.
We offer breakefast for 15 cents, lunch and dinner for 45 cents each menue.
And to poor children we charge nothing at all. We opened in August 2001
and already we are serving 200 adults and over 1.300 Street Children. In
early 2002 we opened Restauraunt Corazons in two of the poorest barrios
of this city - by March we were up to 14 Restuarants Corazon, and we have
been invited to open in other cities.
|| Restaurant Corazon was begun in France
in the mid 1980´s as "Restaurante de Couer". The original
idea was that everyone would be welcome and those who were able to
pay would do so, those who could not ( people living on the street)
would be served
