The name ‘Melissa’ stems from the Greek word for bee.

Migrant women are hard-working bees. They have come here from all over the world, bringing long skills and talents, dreams and ideas, unique stories and extraordinary strengths. 

They are agents of change for their own lives, for their families, for their societies, as well as for the society that hosts them.

Despite the adversities that they have faced and continue to face in the current crisis, migrant women are multipliers and integrators.
