The children were entrusted with / to the care of their uncle.
Usually we entrust someone with something or entrust something to someone. But the coexistence of care and uncle is creating confusion.
I think with is appropriate here with care which is the headword of the phrase the care of their uncle.
Am I right?
Thank you for your explanation.
I have just had my answer from THE CORPUS OF CONTEMPORARY AMERICAN ENGLISH (COCA). The extract is:
Parents have entrusted their children to the care and protection of physical education teachers and coaches.
I think the passive structure of this sentence is the answer to my question.
Thank you once again.
