Trip to Qatar
    Prior to this historic event, Mr. and Mrs. Rahman Ali and Mr. Atta Amin, traveled to Qatar during the World Cup in 2022. They met with Mohamed Riad Massani, who promised much and has delivered nothing to date.  He and Mr. Amin made an arrangement in writing after many valuable pieces of Lapas, signed boxing gloves and signed Lapas were exchanged.  Promises were made by him, for which Mr. Ali, is prayerful for the promises made to him in Qatar to become a reality.
