"may" is used when you asked for permission.
When you need help, you must be very shy if you neeed the persmission to get some help. Instead, "can" is much more frequently used.
In Google, "Where may I get some help" returns 1290 results, and "Where can I get some help" returns more than 3 millions records!

Thanks for your comments.

It's not my own sentence.
It was an existing sentence in Tatoeba, probably from the early times of the corpus (without owner). I owned it and probably added other translations to the thread.

I believe the sentence "Where can I get some help?" already exists, so if I change it now to the variant you suggest (which I agree), it will repeat an existing sentence (and will have to be deleted).

Therefore, I believe we should leave it as it is.

I looked for the variant suggested and didn't find it.
So I'm changing the current one to "can".
