   Winston-Salem will celebrate its interfaith response to the global refugee crisis Saturday, October 21 with an afternoon of activities for children, youth and adults. “Refugees, Neighbors, Friends—An Interfaith Celebration” will be held at Knollwood Baptist Church, 330 Knollwood St., in Winston-Salem from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. The event will involve families of refugees who have resettled in Winston-Salem and volunteers who are helping refugees make this their new home. Admission is free and the community is invited. Stephan Bauman, former President and CEO of World Relief, will deliver the keynote address at 3 p.m. World Relief, which has offices in High Point and Winston-Salem, is one of 10 agencies in the United States that works through the United Nations to resettle refugees. The United Nations estimates that there are more than 65 million people forcibly displaced from their homes, including over 22 million people classified as refugees. Winston-Salem’s refugee resettlement effort has involved participation by members of Muslim, Jewish, Christian and other faith communities. In recent years, they have helped make Winston-Salem home for more than 200 individuals from The Congo, Sudan, South Sudan, Burundi, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Mali, Chad, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Myanmar, Bhutan, Vietnam, Yemen, Somalia, and Cuba.
