Sisters set up deaf cooking classes to help people with mental health issues
New Zealand-based sisters Yolanda Sutton and Natasha Jumulet formed the Deaf Wellbeing Society five years ago, to help connect deaf people who live alone.
As they had grown up knowing the challenges deaf people face in society, the sisters thought the cooking classes could help others in the community.
Now the club has grown from being just a cooking class.
They also run educational trips and group holidays.
They say that not being able to communicate or express freely is frustrating and can affect confidence.
Bringing them together helps make them feel connected and talk about issues that affect their mental well-being.
