Tragedy for young family

I am reaching out for financial help for  the family of a good friend and co-worker of mine. Maurice's family in the Philippines is going through an unimaginable tragedy and I would like to raise money to help with funeral and living costs for this young family.

Maurice’s brother Mervin, living in the Philippines, was brutally shot and killed while making a routine farm delivery on Monday August 7th 2017. Mervin was the sole breadwinner for the family, leaving behind his wife currently 33 weeks pregnant and their 11 year old son. Mervin was also providing financial support and care for his younger brother who is only 31 and battling stage 4 cancer.   

Any donations would help the surviving family tremendously and are greatly appreciated. Thank you.
