Sister Patricia Fox (Sr Pat)

Sister Pat is a 72-year old Australian missionary who has lived in the Philippines for 27 years, helping and supporting the farmers, workers and indigenous Filipinos. She is a staunch human rights advocate and an advocate of poor and struggling Filipinos. Early this year, she joined an international fact finding mission to Mindanao where they witnessed and documented many cases of human rights violations.  President Duterte disliked her advocacy work and ordered her to leave the country. 

Sr Pat is an elected member of the National Council of Karapatan (an alliance of human rights organisation and programs in the Philippines.)
