Refugees from various countries will come to Ketchum Oct. 26 for a Breaking Bread With Refugees program.

    With millions of people from countries around the world displaced from their homes—whether because of natural disasters, war or other calamities—the world’s refugee crisis has grown to proportions that haven’t been seen since World War II.

    And though most headlines regarding refugees carry datelines half a world away from the Wood River Valley, the refugee crisis isn’t isolated to other continents or even other states, as the International Rescue Committee, which works to resettle refugees from war-torn or storm-ravaged areas, can attest.

    During The Community Library’s Breaking Bread With Refugees event today, Oct. 26, valley residents will get a chance to learn about how the refugee crisis has come to the valley’s doorstep.
