Family support

Hmm! Being the only boy from my village who studied at the university in the big city and also getting a scholarship to study outside the country, the whole village decided to help and support me. I have a day before leaving, one man was sent to bring the things to me in Accra. Guess what, they managed to get 3 billy goats, one big bag of cassava, some plantain, dry and fresh fish, fresh tomatoes, onions, pepper, palm oil, and some fresh palm wine to take outside the country with no cash. After presenting the items, the messenger now said he needed money to pay the transportation from and to the village . and also people sent personal messages that I should not live without saying proper goodbye through the messenger. Please advise me, the driver and the messenger is still here.
