Jimmy Carter, 94, back to building homes after having surgery


Jimmy Carter is not only the longest-living president in the history of the USA. He also builds homes with Habitat for Humanity, an international non-governmental Christian organization, that has the headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia.


Carter is 94 and a few months ago he just underwent hip surgery. In 2015 he overcame brain cancer with successful treatment. But it all doesn't stop him from his charity and social work. He does it together with his wife, Rosalynn, who is 92. And now, after hip surgery, he is ready to get back to his work with Habitat.


"There have been many times when people have tried to count President Carter out, and they have never been right,” concluded it Bryan Thomas, a spokesman for Habitat for Humanity International. “We are excited that they will both back,” he added. Carter's plans for the upcoming months? Help to build 21 new homes in Nashville, Tennessee.

Habitat for Humanity was founded in 1976, by Linda and Millard Fuller. Jimmy Carter and his wife joined the organization in 1984, 3 years after Jimmy left the White House. For all these years, Carter and his wife have helped to "build, renovate or repair 4,331 homes," like the organization's sheet states. And it's not that Carter avoids physical jobs in his work with Habitat for Humanity. In 2017 for instance,  he was hospitalized in Wyoming after becoming dehydrated. It was because of his outdoor works for Habitat.


Carter is not only active in his nonprofit work with Habitat. He is also a dedicated Christian. He belongs to the New Baptist Covenant. And while his political views on issues like gun control, healthcare system, same-sex marriage are on par with his Democratic Party, there is one thing that differs him from the most of other Democrats. And that is – abortion. In his 2012 interview with Laura Ingraham, he said that he would like to see Democrats "more pro-life". In the same interview, he also said that he had never believed "that Jesus Christ would approve of abortions."
