   With every hoodie YOU purchase, KENZA will give a hoodie to a person living in the Gaza Camp. The Gaza Camp is the poorest among the ten Palestinian refugee camps in Jordan. KENZA does not believe in charity, but rather self-development. Instead of simply giving a hoodie out, the KENZA store will be exclusively open in the SEP Building of the Gaza Camp.
