Indonesia is home to 5.4 million children in need -- some are orphans, others victims of domestic violence -- with about 300,000 registered with the government as street children. But the social affairs ministry believes there are 'tens of thousands' more unregistered children, although actual numbers are not known. There is also little data on the prevalence of sex abuse among the children. AFP PHOTO / ADEK BERRY (Photo credit should read ADEK BERRY/AFP/Getty Images)
