Children without parental care

The numbers of all children without parental care vary from source to source, but UNICEF estimates that there is between 3000 and 3500 children without parental care. Out of it, 41 percent are children without both parents, 36% are abandoned children, and 16 % have parents that are unable to perform their parental duties. According to reliable estimates, less then 40 % of children without parental care is institutionalized. Preliminary results of the research done by the Ombudsman’s in Federation indicate some outrageous violations of child rights in the institutions. These children are often forgotten by the society and the media, and stigmatized by their environment.
