"Were" is not only the plural form of "was", it's also the past subjunctive in both plural and singular: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/English_subjunctive#Use_of_the_past_subjunctive

Jij is subject, jou is object, jouw is possesive. All these can be replaced by je. In the given sentence you can use either jou or je.

  • jij helpt = je helpt = you help
  • ik help jou = ik help je = I help you
  • jouw hulp is welkom = je hulp is welkom = your help is welcome
