The members of the Woman’s National Democratic Club were saddened to learn of President Jimmy Carter’s cancer diagnosis, and we wish him a full recovery.
Throughout his presidency and in the succeeding years, Mr. Carter, America’s 39th President, has advocated for peace and human rights, and spearheaded humanitarian work throughout the world. As President, he won the Nobel Peace Prize for brokering the historic 1977 peace agreement, the Camp David Accords, between Menachem Begin of Israel and Anwar Sadat of Egypt, which holds to this day.
Through the Carter Center, founded in partnership with Emory University, President Carter has observed 100 elections in 38 countries to establish and strengthen democracies, helped to establish village-based health care delivery systems in thousands of communities worldwide, advocated to strengthen international standards for human rights, and worked with Habitat for Humanity to build homes for less fortunate families worldwide.
WNDC members express their deep gratitude to President Carter for his outstanding contributions to our nation and the world.
“The bond of our common humanity is stronger than the divisiveness of our fears and prejudices.” God gives us the capacity for choice. We can choose to alleviate suffering. We can choose to work together for peace. We can make these changes- and we must.”
From A Full Life: Reflections at 90, President Jimmy Carter.
