A survey administered by Save the Children in Indonesia has revealed several key risks faced by children and families in Indonesia as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to this article from the Jakarta Post. "Among the risks are reduced child welfare due to their parents’ loss of or decreased income, difficulty in accessing basic health services, difficulty in accessing quality education, limited support to children with disabilities, losing parents, increased risk of child abuse and other safety issues as well as increased vulnerability of child victims of natural disasters."
