Carter Work Project 2012
For the 29th annual Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project, President and Mrs. Carter have returned to Léogâne, Haiti, the epicenter of a devastating earthquake in January 2010. This week, they join volunteers from around the world in the continuation of a two-year effort to build homes and support Habitat’s efforts in Haiti. Follow along with us all week as we post links to stories and updates about the event’s progress and families served.
