Kuol, who was bashed at an 18th birthday party in Girrawheen, died on February 25 after spending six days fighting for his life at Royal Perth Hospital.

Jibrine Jok said family members were still heavily grieving the death of their son and looking to give him the send off he deserved.

Edmund Rice Lions manager and family friend Bella Ndayikeze has set up a Chuffed website to help with raising funds.

“Kuol was involved with our club and I wanted to help where I could, so when I got the go ahead, I set it up,” Ms Ndayikeze said.

Police have charged an 18-year-old Balga man with Kuol’s murder.
