South East Community Development Council (CDC) was set up in 24 November 2001, serving the residents in South East District in Singapore (Marine Parade GRC, East Coast GRC, Fengshan SMC, Mountbatten SMC and MacPherson SMC). At the helm of South East CDC is Mayor Mohamad Maliki Bin Osman, who steers efforts in achieving the three strategic thrusts that guide the work of the CDCs. Termed the “ABCs of Community Bonding‟ — Assisting the Needy, Bonding the People and Connecting the Community — South East CDC initiates and manages programmes in collaboration with both community and corporate partners along these three strategic thrusts, so as to nurture a vibrant and self-reliant community.
