Last month, Jimmy Carter said he wasn't sure he would be able to travel to Nepal in November. We've learned that his doctors have cleared the former president to make the trip.

Carter, who turns 91-years-old on Thursday, will participate in a Habitat for Humanity project in the country. 

In a statement Tuesday, Carter said that the medical team treating him for cancer recently consented to the trip and he's grateful to be makeing the trip with his wife, Rosalynn. 

The build in Nepal's Chitwan district is scheduled for November 1 through 6. Roughly 1,500 volunteers will build homes with low-income families. 

This is the 32nd year the former president has donated his labor to the housing non-profit organization.
