Former US President Jimmy Carter will be traveling to Nepal for Habitat for Humanity’s annual Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project in November.

Carter and his wife Rosalynn have been volunteering with Habitat for Humanity for decades. This year will mark the 32nd year the former president has volunteered for the housing non-profit.

Carter who is set to celebrate his 91st birthday this week is battling cancer. In a statement, Carter said that he had received consent from his medical team to travel to Nepal. “Since Rosalynn and I first volunteered with Habitat for Humanity in 1984, we’ve never missed a single year,” said Carter. “I am grateful that we can join with other volunteers in November and continue to help shed light on the critical need to address inadequate housing around the world.”

He will be traveling to Nepal to build homes for Dalit families in Chitwan. 1500 volunteers from within Nepal and all around the world will be joining him in the build set to take place from 1 to 6 November.
