“He attended the morning devotional at 8 a.m. kicking off the last day of the annual Jimmy and Rosalyn Carter Work Project in Canada,” it added.
“He and Mrs. Carter extend their appreciation for the many well-wishes he received worldwide.”
Some Twitter users on Friday praised Carter, 92, for continuing his humanitarian work one day after being hospitalized for dehydration.
Carter was reportedly treated for dehydration Thursday after he collapsed while working in Winnipeg.
Jimmy Carter and his wife, former first lady Rosalyn Carter, have been helping build 150 homes across Canada in celebration of the nation’s 150th anniversary.
