Additionally, the government has set up a fund to support the families who have lost their lives and to help with the rebuilding of the affected areas. The government has also launched a program to improve building standards and disaster preparedness in the country.

Many of the buildings that have been destroyed were not constructed to withstand earthquakes, leading to widespread devastation and loss of life, according to the official report. The government has promised to take steps to improve building standards and introduce an earthquake-resistant housing policy in the country to avert disaster. This will help to reduce the impact of future earthquakes and to protect the lives and properties of the Turkish people.

Despite the efforts of the government and humanitarian organizations, the aftermath of the earthquake in Turkey continues to be felt by the affected communities and the rest of the world.
