The iconic NOMOS twelve in striking red: the mark of watches that lend a hand. And, red has been the color of Doctors Without Borders for half a century.

The latter is also causing food prices for countries in the global south to soar to almost incalculable levels. “In one week alone, we admitted almost 1,000 children to our outpatient therapeutic feeding program. Thirty per cent of them were suffering from severe acute malnutrition,” reports Bakri Abubakr, Doctors Without Borders’ program manager in Somalia.
