Morris has now passed away because of severe dengue. His condition had rapidly declined over the past few days. Blood was coming out of his right eye and mouth. His liver was failing. His heart had stopped beating for a while yesterday, and the doctors spent 30 minutes resuscitating him. He recovered, but died a couple of hours later.
The funds will be used to cover his medical fees and to help support his wife and three children who all live in Cambodia. All the members in his family are Cambodian citizens. Because gofundme cannot transfer money to a non US bank account, the money from this campaign will first be transferred to my bank account and then to his wife either through Western Union or as a wire transfer to her bank account.
I, the organizer of this campaign, have been friends with Morris for over a year. I've been amazed by his ability to analyze news events. It seemed like news followed him. His videos changed the perspective of those who watched them. He was the most independent thinker on the Internet. He had a pulse on what's happening in the world, but unfortunately his pulse went away.
He was a loving father and a great friend to everyone who knew him. We are all saddened by his death and will miss him immensely.
Maurice Herman, also known as Morris, has been sick since 9/20/2019. He started having severe diarrhea, so severe he was having it in bed. His situation has gotten worse, and he is currently in ICU. He has dark rashes on his legs and around his mouth. He can barely open his eyes and can only respond with short phrases. He is currently on a ventilator. He is in a hospital in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
Morris is a journalist living in Cambodia. He has a wife and three children, two daughters and a son. He lives entirely on donations.
Please donate what you can to help him with his medical fees.
Updates on his progress will be provided.
