Yes! There should be! Let me break it down for you:

  • Ik kwam naar jou om [...] - I came to you to [...]
  • om hulp vragen - (to) ask for help

    No there shouldn't be (according to my Dutch mother). It would be exactly like saying "I came to you to to ask for help".

    No, the first "om" (+te) corresponds to "to" while seconds corresponds to "for".

    "Vragen om" = to ask for

    Exact same construction as in German. "Ich kam zu Dir um um Hilfe zu fragen"
