As rightly mentioned by the learned member, the payment of Gratuity arises only after the employee services are severed by any of the following means termination/retirement, permanent disablement, death or superannuation only.
Gratuity is not paid while a person still serving the company/organization.

It is goodness on your part to think of helping employee in financial distress .But question is paying it against gratuity which is yet not due, is the only option you have.
I think it is possible to pay him short term loan recoverable in suitable instalments from his salary.
But there no bar for you to pay it against gratuity by creating suitable documents .
