Jimmy Carter, who served as president of the United States from 1977 through 1981, would have turned 95 years old today.
Despite the fact that he hasn’t been in public office for almost 40 years, he continues to devote his time and energy to making the country a better place.
Carter, who was born on October 1st, 1924, has now lived longer than any other president of the United States of America in history.
Prior to his passing in November 2018, at the age of 94 years and 171 days, former President George H.W. Bush held the position of former President of the United States.
Although Carter made headlines in March when he surpassed Bush’s record for living the longest at 94 years and 172 days old, this is not his first appearance in the news in the recent years.
Carter, who is also one of the few American presidents to have ever been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, was recently responsible for creating a new health clinic in a small town that had been without a physician for four months.
He also leased out a portion of his own property in order to launch a solar farm that is powering half of his hometown.
Additionally, his charity has been a major contributor in making guinea worm the second disease to ever be eradicated.
Additionally, in 2016, Carter was given a diagnosis of stage 4 melanoma. Despite the fact that he was having treatment for the disease, Carter continued to volunteer his time to build homes for the less fortunate through Habitat for Humanity.
Thankfully, his immunotherapy treatments were successful, and a few months later, doctors determined that he was no longer affected by cancer.
Together with his wife Rosalynn, Carter has been a volunteer for the housing organization for the past 36 years, during which they have contributed to the construction of thousands of homes.
In addition, they have decided that they will honor Mr. Carter on his birthday by participating in the upcoming annual Habitat for Humanity construction project in Nashville, which will take place the following week.
“Both President and Mrs. Carter are committed to making the world a better place for as long as they are able to use the influence they have gained in their positions.
A representative for the Carter Center noted in a statement that “their unwavering determination and heart have contributed to improving life for millions of the world’s poorest people.”
