Parents have the right and duty to take care of their children and, in accordance with their abilities, to provide conditions for their comprehensive development. In accordance with the Constitution, children who no longer have parents or whose parents cannot take care of them for whatever reason enjoy the special protection of the State. Alternative care is provided for such children in an environment in which, to the greatest extent possible, they can gain an important experience of family life.
