Former US President Carter Collapses At Charity Building Project: Report
Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter is under observation after collapsing at the building site in Canada, local media outlets reported.
In a statement, Habitat for Humanity said that the 92-year-old Carter was “dehydrated working in the hot sun” at a build site in Winnipeg on Thursday.
Firefighters and paramedics arrived at the build site and Carter was taken to a hospital.
Carter is 92 years old, but he still swings a mighty hammer to help the poor. According to the report, Carter told Habitat officials he is OK, and encouraged volunteers to keep building.
Carter and his wife, Rosalynn, are in the middle of a weeklong project building houses in various Canadian cities.
This week’s build is the 34th time the Carters have volunteered to build houses for the Atlanta-based charity.
True to his Christian values, Carter famously said, “If you don’t want your tax dollars to help the poor, then stop saying that you want a country based on Christian values. Because you don’t!”
Get well, Mr. President.
