Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and Rosalynn Carter returned to the Habitat for Humanity build site in Winnipeg this morning. They attended the daily morning devotional at 8 a.m. kicking off the last day of Habitat’s 34th Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project.
President Carter was discharged from St. Boniface General Hospital early this morning after being admitted briefly for rehydration.
From July 9-14, President and Mrs. Carter joined thousands of volunteers for Habitat’s Carter Work Project to build 150 homes across Canada in celebration of the country’s 150th anniversary.
“Rosalynn and I are pleased to be bringing together volunteers to build alongside families during this year’s Carter Work Project,” said President Carter. “Housing affordability in Canada is at an all-time low. We are proud supporters of Habitat for Humanity and grateful to everyone who is joining us in our efforts to bring affordable housing to families across the country.”
Since 1984, President and Mrs. Carter have traveled around the world with Habitat, donating their time and voices annually to build and improve homes and raise awareness of the critical need for decent and affordable housing. Inspiring millions over the last three decades, President and Mrs. Carter have worked alongside nearly 100,000 volunteers in 14 countries to build, renovate and repair more than 4,000 homes.
A little wonderful note President Carter and Mrs. Carter have been married 71 years!
