Former President Jimmy Carter recently fell down in his home. The fall left him with numerous wounds above his eye, and required him to be rushed to the hospital to receive 14 stitches.
However, President Carter isn’t letting his wounds prevent him from doing what he loves – building homes with Habitat for Humanity.
Carter explained his reason for going back to work while recovering from his fall:
“I had to go to the hospital and they took 14 stitches in my forehead, and my eye is black, as you’ve noticed. But I had a number one priority and that was to come to Nashville to build houses.”
Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit organization that helps people build homes and improve their home. The organization’s goal is to provide affordable housing to people who want to live in strong, stable communities.
