Perspectives on Miheleu

The Health Centre

Posted in Background, Health by miheleu on September 25, 2008

Until early the end of 1970s and early 80s the village had a staffed health centre with a medical clinician. Since then the clinic in Lazareni had been serving the village.

Now the building which used to house the village clinic is derelict, with only horses and other domesticate animals finding refugee in it during hot summers or cold winters.

However in 2007 the mayor sought to locate a doctor in the village, but her efforts did not receive a good coverage from the regional press.

The people who live in the village get their water from the wells.

Most of the people have their own well, but not all the wells hold drinking water.

During hot and dry summer some of the wells dry up and people source water from village common wells.

Since 1976 primary 5 to 8 children are attending school in the nearby village of Carandeni.

Now, in 2008 there are very few children who attend the school (about 5 children).

Miheleu is a small village inĀ  Bihor the North West Romania. It is administrated from Lazareni. A while back, that is in the 1970s Miheleu was an administrative centre, but due to the nationalisation process the people moved away and the village lost its economic and administrative influence. Even in the 1980s there was still a small administrative office from where the local cooperative farm was run. Adject to the administrative office there was a town hall who was put to good use up untill the 1980s, when it become derelict.
