A friend of the family has one GoFundMe call for boy parents Karli and Stirling Hakiwai.

& # 39; Pure evil came to the fore when they were attacking boys while walking down their home street in Melbourne.

& # 39; Maaka was taken from our lives. Nate has been able to fight on and fortunately is still with us, although still in a stable but critical condition in the hospital.

& # 39; Stirling and Karli experience unimaginable pain as they grieve this terrible tragedy, & # 39; said the woman.

The funds raised in the appeal are expected to go to Maaka & # 39; s funeral and help his parents take time off work to mourn and take care of their eldest son, Nate.
