Ezwitti: Jordan restaurant that helps feed the homeless

Mahmoud Nabulsi wanted to find a way to help the poor, mobilise Jordan's youth and support rural women.

    A restaurant in Jordan's capital Amman, which has been providing thousands of free meals to the homeless, is so successful it is now expanding.

    Mahmoud Nabulsi founded Ezwitti, a restaurant where buying your meal provides one for someone in need, an idea that has transformed an entire community.

    Al Jazeera's Natasha Ghoneim reports from Amman, Jordan.
