Former United States president Jimmy Carter has been treated for dehydration while volunteering with Habitat for Humanity in Winnipeg.

Thursday afternoon, a spokesperson for George W. Bush released a statement: "God Bless him, and we hope he is fine".

Carter was in the city for the 34th annual Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project building 25 new homes in the province as part of 150 being built across the country with Habitat for Humanity. They are working with the organization to build 150 homes this week. Former first lady Rosalyn Carter accompanied him on the humanitarian trip and was alongside him when he was taken to a Winnipeg hospital for rehydration.
