Adopt-A-Minefield is a United Kingdom-based charity which raises awareness about landmines and their associated problems, and raises funds to clear minefields and help survivors of landmine accidents. It has raised over $17 million (approximately £9.5 million) since it was established in the 1990s, enabling it to clear minefields in 126 villages in Afghanistan, Angola, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Cambodia, Croatia, Iraq, Laos, Mozambique and Vietnam.

Adopt-A-Minefield was established by UNA Trust, a body associated with the United Nations Association UK. Its patrons are Heather Mills McCartney and Paul McCartney; other supporters include Twiggy and David Knopfler.
