94-Year-Old Jimmy Carter Is Building Homes For The Poor Again Only Months After Hip Surgery

Jimmy Carter had a hip surgery in spring 2019, but he's ready to build another house. The former President is 94 years old, which makes him the longest living President of the US. He has been helping build houses for more than three decades.


Carter joined forces with Habitat for Humanity, yet his surgery forced him to take a break. Well, he will not give up, and we'll see him build some more houses after recovering from his procedure.


The former President and his wife, former first lady Rosalynn Carter, intend to build 21 new houses in Nashville, Tennessee, as a spokeswoman for the Carter Center confirmed.

Bryan Thomas, a spokesman for Habitat for Humanity International, said that President Carter should not be counted out, because he always comes back.


The former President jumped back on his feet three months after breaking his hip in May 2019. He's been a volunteer with Habitat for Humanity for 35 years. They build houses in the Park Preserve neighborhood of Nashville. Future Habitat homeowners, as well as other volunteers, also have a role in the process.

Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter have lent a hand in the construction of over 4,300 homes in 14 countries since 1984. Before his injury, Carter took part in the 2018 Carter Work Project in Mishawaka, Indiana.


The fracture sent him home, and doctors advised him to rest. According to Healthy Food House, the former President had to put on hold his teaching classes at Sunday school. Carter came back less than a month after the procedure. People at Maranatha Baptist Church were excited to have him back.

The Democrat was the 39th President from 1977 to 1981. He was a Georgia state senator and governor. Carter is a Nobel peace prize winner thanks to his work with the Carter Center and his criticism of wars. After retiring, Carter spends his time doing charity work.

According to the former President, the United States is falling behind China because of all the wars. He explained that the Chinese have not wasted a penny on war which puts them ahead of our country. America has lost $3 trillion. Rather than investing the money in railroads, bridges, roads, and education, we invested $3 trillion in wars.
