Some stories will break your heart as you read of people's squalid conditions, while other stories will lift your spirit as you discover people's incredible resiliance in the face of grueling hardship.

Melissa Mitchell founded Walk With Me at the height of the refugee crisis to feed, heal, teach, and sustain refugees fleeing war-torn regions. In 2015, she strategically partnered with Tying Vines, Inc. to establish 501(c)3 status for her projects and was grafted into the organization as the Humanitarian Director. Like the name, Walk With Me, the focus is to work alongside trusted regional partners to help facilitate programs that directly benefit refugees. This humanitarian branch of Tying Vines, Inc. has partnered with multiple organizations to provide medical care, educational programs, vocational training for young adults and counseling for traumatized refugees.
Mitchell pioneers humanitarian projects in some of the most difficult countries in the world fighting injustice and standing in the gap for those without a voice. She draws on more than 25 years of experience in human resources and strategic leadership in both the U.S. and Middle East markets.
