Jimmy Carter left the hospital and returned to a Habitat for Humanity site


Former President Jimmy Carter on Friday returned to a Habitat for Humanity project in Winnipeg, Canada one day after he was hospitalized for collapsing there.

“Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter was discharged from St. Boniface General Hospital this morning to return to the Habitat for Humanity build site in Winnipeg,” The Carter Center said in a statement.

“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.

The Habitat for Humanity project purportedly began July 9 and lasts until Friday, concluding with the new site in Winnipeg.

Former Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday voiced support for Jimmy Carter following the former president’s health scare.

Jimmy Carter served as America’s 39th president from 1977 to 1981, and he was ultimately awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2002 for his work with the Carter Center.
