The United Nations responded by establishing a mine action center in 1996 to begin rebuilding cities and towns in Croatia devastated by the conflict. Adopt-A Minefield has raised nearly $1 million for our Croatian mine clearance partners, enabling reconstruction to begin in dozens of communities. Demining also restores a sense of safety and normalcy in everyday life in this ravaged country. Working with the International Trust Fund for Demining and Mine Victims Assistance, Adopt-A Minefield has helped clear over 13O,OOO square meters of land to date. Croatia is poised for economic and social recovery, all that remains is to clear the thousands of landmines that contaminate its farmland, roads, and communities.
