The Didier and Martine Primat Foundation granted support to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies for the provision of basic services and long-term recovery efforts in the Bahamas related to the damage caused by Hurricane Dorian.

- Restoring and strengthening the safety, well-being and longer-term recovery of communities in disaster affected areas through shelter and settlement solutions.
- Sustainable reduction in risk of waterborne and water related diseases in targeted communities in the recovery phase.
- Reduction of the immediate and medium-term risks to the health of affected population.
- Restoring and strengthening the livelihoods of communities in disaster and crisis affected areas.
- Identifying and addressing the distinct needs of the most vulnerable and particularly disadvantaged and marginalized groups, as a result of inequality, discrimination and other non-respect of their human rights.
- Supporting the needs of migrants and their families and those assisting migrants at all stages of migration (origin, transit and destination).
- Disaster preparedness and prevention of communities in high risk areas.
