Vulnerability is the state of risk in which children  have little or no power over factors outside their  control. Vulnerability is increased by poverty,  homelessness, and lack of adult support. Natural disasters, lack of food and shelter and  lack of medical care are all factors that increase  risks for children in both the modern and  developing world.

Indonesia is the world's largest archipelago,  located between  Asia  and Australia. It is a country where stunning scenery, lush  rainforests and endangered animals are found  alongside natural disasters; disasters which have  harmed, traumatised and displaced hundreds of  thousands of women and children. Indonesia's  population is concentrated in urban areas, putting  great strain on the capacity of cities to provide  housing and social services.
