Rock guitarist Jimmy Page, who also is the founder of the band Led Zeppelin, was awarded honorary citizenship in the state of Rio de Janeiro for his work with Brazil's poor and abandoned children.

Presented with the honor at a ceremony on Tuesday at the House, Page commented "The greatest satisfaction is not the decoration. It is knowing that I am able to help someone who needs help." Run by the British charity Task Brasil, Casa Jimmy offers medical and psychological support for street kids and pregnant teenagers as well as food, clothing and help in job training. More than 300 children have benefited from it.
