Here, communal service may take the form in other countries especially in America Europe in the form of guide at church, raising extended blood and non-blood kin, when friends and neighbors are sick sitting in shifts at the hospital, before or after school looking after neighborhood children, bringing cooked meals to community events and funerals, and in the municipal governing processes organizing the community for activism and participation.
