It may happen that we do not understand people with disabilities, due to health problems born or caused by an accident. This is so, more due to our lack of knowledge of this category, than their disregard. 
This time we want, to give educational messages to all of us through cartoon, that this category of people have any physical disability or other, while in other areas they can be very useful to society and being active, they are good for themselves and society. 
Cartoonists are the ones who give silent messages, but ring like bells and draw attention to that part of society that don't realize that they themselves are not limitless. 
As an orientation, these titles can serve: 
- Persons with disabilities and traffic 
- Persons with disabilities and urbanism 
- Persons with disabilities and society 
- Persons with disabilities and the social circle 
- Persons with disabilities and sports, etc.

We welcome you with love to Ferizaj, in the city which has three features that other cities do not: 
1/ Ferizaj is a city with the year it was founded in 1873, when it was born together with the Vienna-Thessaloniki railway. 
2/ Ferizaj became a city for once, having never been inhabited. 
3 / In Ferizaj is the Nerodima Bifurcation, a special phenomenon, where the river is divided into two branches and never joins again. The right branch joins the river Lepenc, Vardar and flows into the Aegean Sea, while the left branch joins Moravia, the Danube is poured into the Black Sea. 
Let cartoons serve as a bridge of cooperation between peoples even when pointless conflicts and bloodshed occur in the world, but cartoons made its way crossing borders through virtual exhibitions and penetrates where it is dedicated to you.
