Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter has been hospitalized in Canada after suffering from dehydration while working at a building site for the Habitat for Humanity project.

Habitat for Humanity said in a statement that Carter, 92, was “dehydrated working in the hot sun.” He was helping build houses at the site in Winnipeg, Canada.

“President Carter told us he is okay and is being taken offsite for observation. He encourages everyone to stay hydrated and keep building,” a spokesman for Habitat for Humanity said.

The former president was taken to the hospital as a precaution, and his wife, Rosalynn, was by his side, the Carter Center said in a statement.

Carter and his wife are in the middle of a weeklong project building houses in various Canadian cities.

This week’s build is the 34th time the Carters have volunteered to build houses for the Atlanta-based charity.

In August 2016, Carter revealed he was diagnosed with melanoma that had spread to his brain. He announced last May he no longer needed treatment for the cancer diagnosis, but will “resume treatment if necessary.”

Carter is still receiving treatment but an update on his condition will be released shortly from the hospital or the Carter Center.

We wish him the best.

God Bless.
