(Meredith) -- Months after breaking his hip, former President Jimmy Carter will resume his yearly tradition of building homes for Habitat for Humanity.
The former president and his wife Rosalynn will be in Nashville from Oct. 6-11 to help construct homes for 21 families.
Carter, 94, fell and broke his hip in May at his home in Plains, Georgia, while leaving to go turkey hunting. He subsequently had hip replacement surgery.
“There have been many times when people have tried to count President Carter out, and they have never been right,” Bryan Thomas, a representative for Habitat for Humanity International, told the Hill. “We are excited that they will both [be] back.”
For the past 35 years, the Carters have worked alongside more than 100,000 Habitat for Humanity volunteers to build, renovate and repair 4,331 homes in 14 countries.
