Depp and Heard were moved to tears as they helped fit more than 200 people with the devices in Rio de Janeiro.

The couple linked up with The Starkey Hearing Foundation, which fits more than 100,000 hearing aids a year to children and adults, according to their website.

"If you pass something over to someone that they haven't had ever before, it's very moving," Depp told the Associated Press.

Heard fought back tears as she described the experience.

"The reaction somebody has when they hear for the first time, in this case, you see it light up - changes their whole face," she said. "Just to be a small part of that for one moment, to see someone's life change in front of you, it's moving to say the least."

Depp is currently in Rio to perform with his band, The Hollywood Vampires, which also features Alice Cooper and Aerosmith’s Joe Perry. The supergroup is in Brazil to perform at the annual Rock in Rio Festival currently taking place.
