CBN's Operation Blessing International delivered 40 boats to Japanese fisherman affected by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami.
The fishermen have been out of work since the natural disasters devastated the nation almost six months ago.
Thousands of boats were lost and entire seaweed and shellfish cultivation operations were destroyed when the tsunami hit.
Japanese boat builders are struggling to build boats to replace those lost and there is an extended waiting time of up to a year for a new vessel.
Operation Blessing hopes to be able to donate hundreds more boats in the next several months.
Find out how you can help Operation Blessing International's disaster relief programs around the world and here at home.
