Former President Jimmy Carter Collapses At Habitat For Humanity Build

Former President Jimmy Carter was hospitalized Thursday after collapsing due to dehydration on the construction site of a Habitat for Humanity house in Winnipeg, Canada. As a precaution, he was transported to St. Boniface General Hospital for rehydration, the statement explained.

Habitat for Humanity, which has had a long association with the Carters, is constructing 150 homes this year for people in need in Canada to celebrate the country's 150th anniversary.

Carter is scheduled to speak at the build's closing ceremonies in Winnipeg Friday night, where he will announce the location of next year's work project.

Carter, 92, became unsteady while attending a Thursday morning event at the site of a building project with Habitat for Humanity, a charitable organisation promoting affordable home ownership, according to a statement from the Carter Centre, which is based in Atlanta.

Carter told local news station 630 CHED, "When we get through with this build here, we'll look back and say 'this was one of the best we ever had'".

The former president and his wife, Rosalynn, were in Edmonton, where Habitat is building 75 homes, from Monday to Wednesday before coming to Winnipeg, where the couple joined hundreds of volunteers working on 25 homes in the St. James community, said Rowena Sara, a spokeswoman for the organization.
