"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

    The dictionary defines it as meaning 'in spite of' (like in your example), or despite, regardless of. "Notwithstanding his many activities, Alan finds time to be a dedicated husband and father" @sazidmahmud31.
